    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on behalf of The Carter Family! The Bible describes a gift of incalculable worth to all of us including Roosevelt who is sleeping in death. "God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) This is a promise to be treasured by those Roosevelt left behind!
