Dear Carter family,
I cannot tell you how sorry I was to find out that "Mr. Buddy" had passed. I did not see the notice and missed the funeral, but could not help myself by trying to express my feelings for him. The Post and Courier ran them today under the Heading Mr Baseball in the editorials. I loved seeing Mr. Buddy at the fields for 22 years as I coached for JI rec and would see him at the fields

Frankie, Randy & Tom: Mr. Buddy was one of the nicest gentleman we knew. Even though we lived in the adjoining neighborhood, we probably knew Mr. Buddy better from St. Andrews playground. It seemed like your family and our family was always there! Frankie, I can't tell you how much my heart breaks for you and your family. A very fine man will be remembered. God bless you all.

Dear Frankee, Randy, Tom and family,
I am saddened to learn of Buddy's passing. For many years he has given his heart to us in so many ways and we are so appreciative. Through the playground connections our friendshp ties have been woven into a strong bind that will last forever. Thanks for sharing Buddy and allowing our hearts to grow stronger through his kindness and generosity. May God Bless y'all! Paul and Mottie

Dear Carter Family, my husband Dave and I have the enormous pleasure of knowing Buddy for many years when we were Stingray season ticket holders. Buddy was a true gentleman who spoke kindly of all. But his face lit up the most whenever we would ask how his wife and/or his family were doing. It was obvious they were the joy of his life! Nothing can lighten your suffering during this time but please know we are praying for Buddy and all of you. May God bless!

So sorry to hear of Buddy's passing. He'll always hold a "Special" place in the hearts of all those he touched at the St. Andrews Playground. What a guy!
Love to you,

There are times when words are little consolation to the family. This is one of them but I still have to say that Dolly and I hope that you might find some comfort in knowing that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and that the memory of Buddy will serve as a blessing to all of you forever. I cherish all of the chats he and I had over the years both playing softball together and of course at St. Andrews where he was always "the guy".
