Funeral for Rosalynn Carter Held at Her Georgia Church
Family and friends honored the former first lady Rosalynn Carter in a funeral service at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., where she and Jimmy Carter had worshiped for decades.
“She was kind, loving and caring. She drew a lot of energy from her grandkids and later, her great grandkids. She loved her family. And she was happiest whenever there was a new baby. Rosalynn went to almost every corner of the world and met with people from all walks of life. She worked with everybody, from world leaders to people living on less than $1 a day. And what she told us stories about the work that she was doing, she would only ever focus on the people, on humanity. Everywhere she went, she would tell us that the people were just as smart and just as capable as she was. She helped wherever she could.” “Her family, her neighbors, her friends all knew her to be someone who did not think of herself, but rather others and others’ needs. Her care and concern for those around her defined her and left the most remarkable impression upon our hearts and memories as we remember her today. The challenge that each and every one of you going to have is how are you going to see the next day of her legacy?
