Michael Neal Carter was my father and he was taking away from me , my brother and sister way to soon. I was just 7 yrs old & even though 42 yrs ago my life changed forever, we appreciated your dedication to law enforcement. We know that you are watching over us.
Michael Neal Carter, Sr. was one of the good guys and its sad that his grandchildren and great grandchildren never had the opportunity to meet him.
