So sad that my older Carter sister has passed. Mary was one of a kind. I always marveled at her chutzpah and moxie! She was a loving daughter, sister, mother and wife – I know her passing leaves a tremendous void in the lives of all who loved her. I feel fortunate that my life was touched by her’s.

Oh Mary… So so sad to hear you have passed…. Meghan and I were reminiscing about our trips for soccer and basketball… Meg, Emily, you and me… we had a ball! I remember the OJ chase as I was with you and the girls up in Midland! We had a ball! Continue charming everyone in the afterlife, dear one! Love you! Denise Skalsky

My deepest sympathies to the family. I had not seen Mary in a few years but we worked together at Lansing School District, enjoyed talking about our love for animals, had several laughs together, and I babysit for Bo and Emily a few weekends when your parents were out of town. Your mom and Richard will be missed. Mary Kay Gavitt
