I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Reno Carter family. Reno will be remembered as a kind and gentle spirit. He always had a kind word and a genuine smile for everyone he knew. I will forever reminisce about those hazy summer days at Morris' landing where you were always sure to find Reno sitting on a picnic table strumming that guitar and singing "Farewell Party" to a captivated audience gathered around him. I bid you, farewell, Mr.Reno, may you rest in peace in the loving arms of our Lord!
"He will swallow up death in victory;and the Lord God will wipe away the tears from off all faces." (Isaiah 25:8)
