Gary Carter died at 4:10 PM. His daughter told the world this sad news on her blog:
“It has been exactly 4 weeks since the last journal and that decision was made as a family. I am deeply saddened to tell you all that my precious dad went to be with Jesus today at 4:10 pm. This is the most difficult thing I have ever had to write in my entire life but I wanted you all to know.
He is in heaven and has reunited with his mom and dad. I believe with all my heart that dad had a STANDING OVATION as he walked through the gates of heaven to be with Jesus.
Thank you all for loving my dad and my entire family. I will still share with you all the last four weeks with my dad because they were incredibly special.”
Gary Carter is a Met legend and deserves to get his number retired at Citi Field. RIP Kid Carter. Mets fans and the entire world will never forget about you. Thank you for everything.
