Surviving are four sisters, Betty Holland, Shirley Carter, Mary Ellen Lawson, and Alice Carter (Johnny); two brothers, Charles (Pat), and Ricky Carter (Claudia); two sisters-in-law, Joyce Carter, and Wilma Tootie Pfaff; and several special nieces and nephews. The family would like to send out a special thanks to Ben Crandall for all the care and consideration he has given.
