Matthew Emmerich & Family
Unfortunately I am unable to attend services due to a military obligation. However, I wanted to express my deepest sympathy to the Carter family. Gary's fire for his faith was apparent in every moment I knew him. I always enjoyed playing gospel music with him and Keith and will always have fond memories of those days. I pray that God blesses the Carter family with peace in the knowlegde that Gary is at home with Christ. God bless you all.
