To the dear, kind and immensely talented Rita and Dale: What a remarkable, but mainly, loving and inspiring Mother you were blessed with and may the memories and music you continue to carry on and share at the Fold make you wealthy in heart and spirit. It is such a joy to visit with you at the Fold and share in the rich history and music and good clean fun, but mainly just the kindness and goodness and a strength and peace that radiates from both of you leaves one feeling touched by your family and their gracious, gentle spirit. Your remarkable mother would be so proud! Thank you both and what you are doing to continue the legacy is fantastic and greatly appreciated! Smile and God Bless You! Becky - the animal lover and music lover down in Giles Co, VA.(It is always worth the trip to the Fold - a value cannot be placed upon it.)

Some people just walk around the earth disquised as humans. Janette was one such person. God bless her for keeping the beautiful music, rich in culture, alive. We miss her everyday. My prayers are still with the family.

On a beautiful moonlit October evening in 1985 my wife and I took our newly married son and daughter-in-law to the fold. I met this wonderful woman and also her brother, Joe. We were treated in a royal fashion and I felt as if I had sat at the feet of greatness. These kind of folks will not be replaced. My wife and I were raised in the 40's on Carter music and it will remain in our blood forever. God bless Janette Carter and the wonderful old-time mountain music.

I WAS REALLY SHOCKED AND SADDEND WHEN I LEARNED ABOUT THE DEATH OF JANETTE CARTER TODAY. HER MUSIC WILL LIVE ON IN MY HEART. I AM DEEPLY SADDEND BY HER DEATH. HER DEATH MARKS THE END OF A BEUTIFUL ERA OF COUNTY MUSIC. I HAVE THREE RECORDINGS OF THE CARTER FAMILY, THE FIRST AND SECOND ARE OF THE CARTER FAMILY ON BORDER RADIO STATION XET DOWN IN MEXICO WAY. I LOVE THE CARTER FAMILY. THEIR LEGACY WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!

I was a resident in Family Medicine in Kingsport, TN from 1989-1992 and had occasion to interact with Rita Forrester on a daily basis at Holston Valley Hospital. I went to performances at the Fold twice and so enjoyed Ms. Janette and Uncle Joe. The depth of Janette's talent was remarkable, as was her absolute disinterest in the spotlight and her obvious focus, to their immense benefit, on her family. My sympathies to Rita and the rest of the family, but also congratulations and thanks, from a music lover, to Janette (and Rita--who it looks like is following in her mama's largely unsung footsteps) for keeping the Family's legacy so vibrant. Godspeed.

Dear Friends, Janette was a beautiful lady who always had a big smile for me when I attended the festival. She is with the Lord, her parents A.P, and Sara, and Maybelle forever. The festival she worked so hard to make the success that it is will continue as a tribute to her and Joe. God bless her and best wishes to my Carter family friends. Carl Lanzilli, Nahant MA
