Former US First Lady Rosalynn Carter honored in a memorial service in Atlanta, Georgia
"My darling, every time I have ever been away from you, I've been thrilled when I've returned to discover just how wonderful you are. While I'm away, I try to convince myself that you really are not, could not be, as sweet and beautiful as I remember. But when I see you, I fall in love with you all over again. Does that seem strange to you? It doesn't to me. Goodbye, Darling, until tomorrow, Jimmy"

Jimmy and #RosalynnCarter attended the Atlanta Hawks' NBA game against the New York Knicks at State Farm Arena on Valentine's Day in 2019, and so, of course, they needed to be captured on the kiss cam.
The beloved couple were frequent visitors at Atlanta sporting events over the years and were captured on kiss cams at both Braves baseball games and Hawks basketball games to the delight of the fans.
At this time of #Thanksgiving in the US, I am grateful for the work of #RosalynnCarter on behalf of our country and humanity. I am also grateful for the work of my colleagues whose research illuminates these important actors. In my November Director's Letter for Boston University's Communication Research Center, I turn to the expertise of Dr. Tammy R. Vigil in paying homage to former #FirstLady.
This seems about right. What breaks my heart more is that she probably won’t have to wait long

Rosalynn Carter's roots as an activist, advocate and independent woman go back to her teens, when her father died and she, as the oldest of four kids, took on caring and breadwinning responsibilities. Smithsonian Magazine looks at her lifetime of service, and her influence. “The president of the United States cares what I think. I find myself in the eye of history. I have influence. And know it,” she told the New York Times in 1979.
Telling my daughter the news this morning that #rosalynncarter had passed and that they’d been married for 77 years.
her: wow, is there even a theme for your 77th anniversary? I hope it’s something weird like lawn toys or farm animals.
me: what are a pair of nonagenarians going to do with farm animals?
her: I don’t know, when you’re that old, they can be someone else’s problem.
The former first lady often said that there are only four types of people: those who have been caregivers, those who are now caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregiving themselves. #SundaySentence #rosalynncarter https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2023/11/19/rosalyn-carter-jimmy-carter-partnership/
