News: Carter Memorial Service

By / February 19, 2012 / Past, Present and Future

Gary Carter’s memorial service was announced by the family. Here are the details:

Friday, February 24th at 7:00pm at Christ Fellowship Church, 5343 Northlake Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens, FL.

The Carter family has made a request to everyone:

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to The Gary Carter Foundation, 580 Village Blvd., Suite 315, West Palm Beach, FL, 33409.

Your donations will go to support the Autism Project of Palm Beach County, Hospice of Palm Beach County, and Palm Beach Atlantic University Baseball.

You can be sure the Mets will be sending quite a number of people from the front office there. It most certainly will also be a 1986 Mets reunion. They all held Carter in high esteem.

The New York Mets are working on plans to do something to honor Carter during the season. Many of you Mets fans feel the perfect way would be to retire his number. I will not dispute that. He emulated everything Mets fans and families hold close to their hearts.
