Today marks 15,470 days since Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter left the White House, more than 42 years and five months in retirement.
Jimmy Carter is in hospice, but apparently still alert and aware, based on recent information offered by his grandson Jason Carter, and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young.
Now, we have just learned that First Lady Rosalynn Carter has been diagnosed with dementia, a sad but not surprising reality for many people in their 80s and 90s.
On July 7, the Carters will have been married for 77 years; and on August 18, Rosalynn Carter will be 96 years old, only behind Bess Truman in longevity among First Ladies,
And on October 1, Carter will reach 99 years of age!
Let us all pray for these three celebrations to occur for this wonderful couple!
