To the Family of Preston Carter, I am keeping you in prayer as you are going through the loss of Preston. Preston and I were classmates at Mather Academy and later I found out that my neighbor here in Decatur, GA, Rev. Bobby Saucer and Preston were at Southern. He will be missed, but his memories will always be with his classmates and family. I regret I will be unable to attend the Celebration of Life Services.
