Mattie Lee Carter was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother to all her family. Such wonderful memories of Mattie, the grandma we all used to know. We kept you too long and there waiting. The angels have said you can go with bright golden gates that are shining. Full of family to bid you hello, so blow us a kiss as you’re leaving. Our sadness we’ll try not to show because such wonderful memories of our grandmother we will always know. We all have our favorites memories you see. As you enter those gates you’ll be thinking..They’re all there thinking of me! In our Rose Garden of memories, we see you standing there. An angel in disguise, who taught us how to care. We long to hear your voice, for real not in my dreams. We are missing you so much these days if you only knew how empty our world seems. People say time heals all wounds that someday the pain will subside. But Grandma we can tell you that we think they must have lied. The emptiness we are feeling now is strong and we are weak. These days go by without you are so dreary and so bleak. In our Rose Garden of memories, we know you’ll always be. Although you’re gone from this mortal world, in our hearts you’ll always be. Mattie Lee Carter will be missed by a host of relatives and friends.
