I read the obits everyday and often find one for someone I know....and every so often I find one for someone special....such is the case with Joe Carter\'s obit....I have not seen or heard of him since he worked at the Sterling but I certainly remember his kindness and willingness to go the extra mile for friends....my work at the time required me to many times leave in the middle of a meal and those times that this happened Mr. Carter would keep my dinner warm until I could return and finish eating.....this was appreciated more than probably he ever knew.....it is oft times the small things in life that a person does that causes them to be remembered fondly for almost 50 years....rest in peace Joe Carter.....
