Never a day goes by without my remembering something you said to us on the phone or in person. I find little notes of prophecies you gave to Fred or me! How we miss you! Yesterday Fred went to the VA as you had so often encouraged him to do! Pastor Donald Carter, yours is a voice that made a difference everywhere you went. Your infectious smile changed the atmosphere of every room you entered! I am so glad you are with Jesus where there is no spin, but we all miss you so much! You showed the love of God to everyone you came in contact with and you never took it back!

Remembering my favorite veteran on Veterans Day. Love Juanita
November 05, 2013
Pop, With Veteran's Day approaching, I think this is the holiday you "Pop" cherished and appreciated the most. Especially with your retired Army Veteran background. I miss you especially on the weekends, when my phone would ring and I would hear "It's just Pop checking to see how your doing". My phone doesn't have to ring to know that you are still and will always be checking to see how I am doing. Sandi sends you a high five and I love you.

Pastor Carter was an inspiration to me as I studied fr the ministry and as I used to drive by his house - if he was there I would toot the horn. He would give that beautiful smile and wave - I did this for the last 10 or so years. God has taken him home to worship and rest from his labors. God bles the family and keeo them - comfort them and most of all remind them that this is what he worked so hard for. Jesus is holding him in his arms saying Well done thou good and faithful servant.

You being there

no matter what.
I'll always remember

they'll never be another one
to replace you in my heart,
and the love I will always
have for you.

Rev.Carter i will never forget you.. Your words ment so much to me. You was very close to my nana Alice you help her become a pastor she passed when i was young and threw the years we would sit in your car and you would tell me storys about her, that helped me get to know her. Thank you for being there for me and my family. I know your in heaven smiling down.. You are a legend to me and you will be greatly missed by many..
March 03, 2013
Our deepest sympathy to the family of such a wonderful person. Just catching up on a pile of sentinels and discovered this sad news.Pastor Carter was most instrumental in my close walk with the Lord, and baptized me into the "family of God" 33+ years ago. He taught the Word of God in an easy manner you just couldn't miss. The world has lost a wonderful teacher, and He now has his many "crowns of glory". We will all see him again and
his legacy will live on in all that knew him.

God bless you and your family at this time of sorrow. I will miss you Reverend Carter...
February 26, 2013
Rev. Donald P. Carter was the first pastor of Patriots Congregation at Fort Devens, MA (1971- 1984) during this time, the US Military only allowed religious services for 3 denominations: Catholic, Jewish and Protestant. Rev. Cater led the 1st service to incorporate, Baptist and Pentacost roots while adding a choir which he named “The Fort Devens Gospel Choir” While under his leadership, attendance tripled. At one time 3 additional choirs and several musicians were added to the weekly services. As the congregation grew, he mentored several young men and women into the ministry.
After he left his pastoral duties at Ft Devens, he still attended FT. Devens Gospel Choir anniversary, until the base was slated for closure in 1995. He continued to follow up and check on his former members and keep us updated. My mother was the choir president for many years. Recently, he called to check on her when she was recovering from some medical treatments. His ministry taught us to love and accept all kinds of people, not just those who look like you. He will be missed.
May God continue to bless you.

Rev. Carter and his family took me in after our house was destroyed in a fire. Their house was full of children, yet they made room for one more. It was in that house where I was first introduced to the love of Jesus. I'll never forget the whole family gathering in the kitchen in one big circle praying before meals. It took many years before I came to personally know Jesus, but this incredible family helped plant the seed. Thank you. I know that he is in a much better place. But I also know the we who are left behind feel the loss keenly. May God comfort all of you during this time. Thanks again for taking me in when I so needed to be loved. Thank you Masie for being such a good friend to me.

Rev. Carter
Was a good man, a rightous man, a man I will never will forget. His wife is a woman with a sweet and kind heart. I will never forget the books the books that he sent to read and study for remembering God's words.

Uncle Don once wrote “I'd rather live my life as a mule for Jesus than a stallion for satin” and that's what he did. We will cherish the memories and miss him dearly. We pray for the family and offer our condolence.
February 22, 2013
I will miss our long talks. A remarkable man of faith left us. He will be missed as his spirit was called home to heaven.
February 22, 2013
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Carter family. I have known Mr. Carter's daughter, Brenda, for many years and she always spoke very highly of her dad. He will be missed very much. Treasure all of your wonderful memories, and he will live forever in your heart.

To the Carter family, I'm so very sorry to hear of Rev. Carters passing. He was a wonderful man, and dear to my entire family for many many years. He is loved by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless
February 21, 2013
We were deeply saddened by the loss of our "Uncle Don". But we know he is smiling down on us. We will truly miss his always happy voice. He was the last of his generation of Carters, but the current and next generations are left to carry on the family legacy. To our dear "Aunt Liz" and cousins, we regret being unable to attend Uncle Don's home going services but be assured you will be in our thoughts and prayers at that hour. Love Juanita, Johnny and Robin

Pop Thanks for being the best Dad. I Love You.
