I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

Sgt Carter left home without a doubt of whether or not he would return. He began his shift with a possible plan of action but was prepared to confront the unexpected. That what heroes do.
Sgt Carter probably would never think of himself as a hero but fulfilling what he was called to do.
May God mend the hearts of his family. May He take away their sorrows but allow the precious memories to remain.

My heart aches for my friend. Wytasha and I grew up together in Hooper city and graduated from Phillips High in 1993. He was an intelligent, high energy and helpful young man even then, so it was a natural fit to carry those assets into law enforcement. What a career he forged and a beautiful legacy left to sustain his family, especially his children. I am so sorry he is gone and I will continue to pray for the law enforcement officers in Birmingham and across the country who put their lives in jeopardy daily to make our communities better.

Sleep now brave Sergeant , sleep now.

I pray our Almighty God wraps his arms around your family, department, and friends where you know he’s here for you! Even though it’s easy for me to say, you’re hero is at rest watching over you! You’re hero is not gone, his in the hearts of everyone who were lucky enough to know him! Look around and you will see him everywhere, talk to him, he hears you! But, you know you’re hero doesn’t want you staying sad because of him. He wants you all to live your lives to the fullest, enjoy life! Many years from now when it’s your time and God calls you home you will be together again! The greatest way to love and honor your hero, is to move forward, tell stories about all the good and fun times you spent together! Remember the more you smile, makes your hero smile in heaven! God Bless You All

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
