My thoughts and prayers are still with Scott Carpenter's family and friends. What a great loss to the world! He was such a wonderful man. I remember my mother telling me stories about growing up with Scott in Colorado. I finally had the opportunity to meet him in 2007 after all these years. Such a pleasure.
I apologize for the delay of this entry.
To the family- please contact/message me on FB. I would like to keep in contact. Look forward to speaking with you.
With my deepest sympathy~
The afternoon of Carpenter's spaceflight, I ran home from school to watch the news coverage on TV. What an exciting time to be an Ameridcan and to be a part of the early days of manned space exploration. I was so very proud of the feats of the Original 7 Mercury astronauts and to be a part of the generation experiencing the "Space Age" from the very beginning. God Speed, Scott Carpenter!
REST IN PEACE, SCOTT. YOU MADE. IT IN SPACE. MY FRIEND.
He will never be forgotten he made history my condolences to his family
What a privilege to get a "birds eye view" of our Creator's Universe. That must have been something very special. To see God's creation up close and personal is something that very few of us will ever see. The family and friends of Mr. Carpenter you have my deepest sympathy for your loss May Mr. Carpenter sleep in peace until our God awakens him to something really spectacular.
What a time in space Mr. Scott Carpenter had,a time not too many had or be willing to take. But we got a opportunity to see what he saw. My condolesecences goes out the family. God will make you strong.
Thank you to Mrs. Cumberland for saying to her husband..."Go for it" or something to that affect...
There is nothing I could say that would give you comfort about the loss of your husband, best friend, soul mate...but know there are a lot of people that are praying for you to find peace, I am one of them.
Mr. Carpenter was an extraordinary man who contributed so much to our country and the world during his remarkable life. He certainly will be missed. Godspeed Scott Carpenter! My condolences to the family.
A true American Hero. Godspeed on your next journey sir.
A great man will always remain in the memory of the living. Rest in peace.
I was only a little kid when Astronaut Carpenter did what everyone called the right stuff! I always appreciated working for NASA as a contractor. I've never seen a live launch but in the MER I watched many shuttle launches and worked in mission support of crew members on the International Space Station. Crew members like Scott were the pioneers who laid the foundation for Space Exploration. May he enjoy his launch into heaven where he will meet the final and ultimate space exploration of his eternal path. God's speed to a space explorer and now a man of the heavens.
A true pioneer and hero. God speed, Scott Carpenter.
Family and Friends of Scott,
We was given intelligence and an insatiable desire to know more about our context, including the biosphere, the stratosphere, and beyond. That context includes our tiny solar system and the stars beyond. Scott have peered down upon our earth from hundreds of miles out in space and have marveled at the beauty of this planetary jewel. A Bible writer was inspired to write some three thousand years ago about our Grand Creator: “When I see your heavens, the works of your fingers. The moon and the stars that you have prepared. What is mortal man that you keep him in mind. ”—Psalm 8:3, 4. May our Grand Creator, give you the courage and the strength to cope with your loss. Sorry for your loss.
we need men like you today more than ever. Where are they?
Thank you for your brave and intelligent service to our country. I will forever remember you. My deepest sympathy to your family.
Praise God in your exploration of Heaven!
WOW! What an incredible life Scott had! Although many may try I'm sure his story will not be duplicated ever again. Thank you for the knowledge you have left us with, both above and below ground level.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
The Monterey Bay Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association, founded at the US Naval Postgraduate School, extends our deepest sympathy to all of the Carpenter family members. He was a honored graduate of the General Line School at NPS and forever occupies the first place of 84 astronauts that were alumnus of NPS.
A GREAT AMERICAN AND A SENSATIONAL ROLE MODEL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.
A legend in his own time. I was a young man in the 1960's and remember all those great astronauts of years gone by including Scott Carpenter being among them. Men of tremendous, unequaled courage in an undiscovered world that has opened up to the present. May he rest in peace.
I met Scott in 2007 , a very nice man, having followed his career as a spacefan he came up to my expectations. He wanted to talk about Greenwich Mean Time and horses! Will be reading 'Spacious Skies' again. God Speed Scott Carpenter, you did well, you should have had a Gemini and a Apollo flight. I'll remember you always.... Martin Dawson - York AS and MSS

GODSPEED MY FRIEND, GODSPEED! WE WILL MISS YOU!
Having grown up watching all the manned space launches from the first to now, I vividly remember when Scott Carpenter was launched into space. I was so excited to see another man go into space.
Now, he has gone to a place where he can see everything in the universe and will be there watching over you and the rest of his family forever. He will also be watching all the Astronauts that go up from now on.
May he rest in peace in the arms of God and may the Carpenter Family and the NASA Family find peace after his passing. God Bless you all!

America Has Lost One Of It's Greatest Heroes. My Condolences To His Family. Thank You And Godspeed Scott Carpenter!
To the Family and Close Friends of Malcolm Scott Carpenter: We are so sorry for your loss. Although the death of a loved one is something for which we are never truly prepared, we can be thankful that Mr. Carpenter is one of the few persons who got to live life to the full. We are so grateful for the many contributions he made throughout his life, both as an astronaut and as an aquanaut. Wow!!! I hope it comforts you to know that death is like sleep in that the dead--like Mr. Carpenter--are unconscious and will no longer suffer or feel pain an more. So for now, please join me in looking forward to a time when sickness and death will be things of the past.
RIP, Scott Carpenter. Godspeed to you, sir.
I had the pleasure of meeting this amazing person many years ago and it was one of the highlights of my life. May he rest in peace and please bring peace to your family.
Our generation is loosing far to many heroes. God speed Scott Carpenter. Prayers for the family.
You were a true inspiration to a generation of kids who wanted to be one of those with the "right stuff", to reach to the moon and behind. You helped inspire millions to study science and engineering. I actually had the pleasure of meeting you at a hobby show back in the 90's, and even though I was in my 20's you thrilled me by shaking my hand. You earned your place in the very same stars which you strived to touch with your work. Thank you and rest in peace. May the Lord comfort your family, as he welcomes his child Scott home to ever lasting life.
Scott was every man's hero and he will be missed. Rest in peace.
We'll miss you !
Godspeed Scott Carpenter, you inspired me greatly and your legacy as explorer of both outer and inner space will live on.

n. my heartfelt sympathies. Thank you for the memories and contributions to life. God Speed Scott Carpenter
Godspeed Scott Carpenter...wish we had more like you today. You will be missed!
I am so very sorry for your loss. Hosea 13:14 says, "From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave? Compassion will be concealed from my eyes."

Another American Hero gone. He will never be forgotten, his name will live on in American history forever
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
I was in high school when the Mercury 7 astronauts did their stuff; I loved these guys and have never forgotten them. I have the book "We Seven" and got my interest in space by way of these seven men.
I cried today.
R.I.P. Scott Carpenter.
Life well lived!

All i can say is wow. what a life !
in God's care rest in peace
Enjoy Heaven now Mr. Carpenter. Condolences to the family.
May GOD be your comfort during this time of sorrow.
I had the privilege of having breakfast with Mr. Carpenter in 1985 when I was senior in high school. I will never forget his impression on me that there are things bigger than yourself and the quest for knowledge requires sacrifice and risk.
When I see your heavens, the works of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have prepared, what is mortal man that you keep him in mind?”—Psalm 8:3, 4.
I hope Scott who loved creatures loved their Creator,too.
God speed, Mr. Carpenter.
I remember going to Robert Sugdens Private School in Hampton Va. when he came to pick up his daughter. We were so excited! We all had great expectations of him showing up in his space suit and were so surprised he showed up in jeans and a casual shirt. He was so nice and smiled and said he only wears it in space. Now in my 60's I still remember his wonderful smile and how he stopped to talk to all the elementary kids. He will be missed! Condolences to his close friends and family.
to the Carpenter family .No I did not know scott .I am 58 and watched in awe . I hold scott up with great respect .my sincere condolences. you are in my prayers
So Long to a true American hero.
