The friends of Bobby Carter are uniting to raise money to help his family cover funeral expenses. Please show your support !

I want to tell you about a kind, caring and gentle friend, Bobby Carter.
Bobby, Along with his wife of 51 years Martha (who preceded him in death 4 years ago) Raised three wonderful children. Mitzy, Cathy, And Rick.
Bobby was a wonderful, caring, giving. Husband, Father, Grand Father, son, Brother,Uncle, And Friend to many !
Bobby served our Country during the Korean War and then went to work as a heavy equipment operator, Then later went to work for the Bureau of land management, Where he assumed a foreman position for many year's before retiring in 1997.
Bobbys health started failing in 2009 with issues of his heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Bobby started kidney dialysis in 2010 and was recieving treatments 3 times a week.
Although his physical body was failing, his mental state was still going strong as he continued to share time and stories with his family and friends.
In June of this year, Bobbys heart became more troublesome, and because of his weakend body, He was not considered to be a surgical candidate.
Bobby then acquired a lung infection that had him in and out of the hospital on a regular basis throughout the summer.
Bobby was admitted into a nursing care facility where he could recuperate from his latest heart attack and lung infection.
Bobby was showing signs of improvement and was scheduled to be released to come home and be cared for by his son, Rick on October 23 2012. However , on the evening of October 22, 2012 Bobby started expereinceing some confussion and difficulties with his breathing. He was transported to our local emergency room , where the doctors discovered that Bobby had once again suffered a heart attack.
Bobby was admitted into the hospital for over night observation and to recieve a dialysis treatment the following morning. However, just 2 hours after Rick and I had left the hospital from our visit with Bobby, we recieved a phone call from his nurse informing us that Bobby had passed away very suddenly and without pain.
Although Bobby had been ill for some time...The family was not emotionally or financially prepared for his passing so swiftly.
The family now has some financial obligations to fill in laying Bobby to his final resting place and they are in need of financial assistance from family and friends.
I am , asking for you to please consider and find it in your hearts to help ease this families burden of the funeral expenses.
They have just lost thier loved one and they should only be faced with the grieving right now.
From the bottom of our hearts, And speaking on behalf of the family of Bobby Carter...We thank you for your caring and for your support during this most difficult time.
Thank you !!!
Sincerely; Amy Mathena
