Gary Carter's Valiant Fight Is Over
It is with great sadness that Kimmy Bloemers reports the passing of Mets Hall Of Fame Catcher - Gary Carter.
Carter who was diagnosed in May (2011) with brain cancer has deteriorated over the last four weeks.
His Daughter writes:
"It has been exactly 4 weeks since the last journal and that decision was made as a family. I am deeply saddened to tell you all that my precious dad went to be with Jesus today at 4:10 pm. This is the most difficult thing I have ever had to write in my entire life but I wanted you all to know. "
Kimmy thanks all the people for praying for her father and family.
This is a sad day for those who followed The Kid throughout the years, but as his daughter stated:
"He is in heaven and has reunited with his mom and dad. I believe with all my heart that dad had a STANDING OVATION as he walked through the gates of heaven to be with Jesus. "
...can't argue with that.
Rest in peace Gary.
