This is a lovely tribute to Rosalynn Carter by Steve Schmidt [View all]


'The United States is smaller today because Rosalynn Carter has been called home...Rosalynn Carter was married to the 39th president of the United States for 77 years. He first saw her as a newborn who had been delivered by his mother, a nurse, peering over the edge of her crib.Theirs was a love story for the ages...They were an example for all Americans about how to cherish and honor what you love the most...

Many have commented about the fact that Jimmy Carter has lived longer than most imagined he would when the American people were given the news, but no one should be surprised. Would a man of such indomitable will, strength and goodness have been able to leave his wife first?...Of course, such decisions are not ours alone, but in the case of President Carter, I suspect he was uncompromising on the matter... What a lesson they have given all of us about service, love and selflessness.

James Earl Carter is a faithful man. Pray for him and Rosalynn today. Pray for him to ease the sadness of a man who was our president, who never broke faith with his love, his family, his oath, his duty or any of us. He is one of us like his beautiful wife Rosalynn. What makes them exceptional is that they have shown after a lifetime of love and patriotism that they have been amongst the best of us. May God bless Rosalynn Carter and the whole Carter family.'
