    I have many fond memories of Carter and the Miller Printing days. I was a new supply and equipment salesman for Graphic Arts Western Ltd. and Carter was one of those tasked with ‘breaking me in’. He made sure I learned it, and the right way. I will always be in his debt. He was a true craftsman when it meant something, hot metal to cold type he had experienced it all. I am sure Carter would agree, ‘don’t take life too seriously, you don’t get out of it alive’. It just seems a little too soon. See ‘ya on the other side.

    To my dear sister, nieces and nephews. I just want to say, that it has been a tough journey for you all recently, and that Carter will be sorely missed by you all. I was lucky enough to have him as a brother in law, he was always welcoming when I visited, and had a cold beer ready for me. May the pain ease with time, the memories grow by the day, but most of all the feeling of love to stay with you forever. For he was Carter, and he touched all our lives.

    The Houston Family is thinking of the McNeil family as we have known each other for many years. Carter was always an entertaining guy who was a tremendous athlete. We always enjoyed seeing the ball team in Gus’s backyard or at shuffleboard. We still talk about those great memories.
