To The Carter Family,
I was so saddened to hear about Boris. He was a childhood friend. He always had a kind word for everyone which he delivered with his wonderful sense of humor. Laverne take comfort and know that Boris is at home and at peace with the Lord.

Laverne, Jessica, Camille and the Carter/Raglin Family.

Our heart goes out to you. Bro. Boris was
"one in a million" and he will truly be missed. He was our telephone buddy and was truly a man of God. He loved his church, his church family and
was always checking to see why someone
was not at church. LaVerne, you and Boris were always readily wanting our
granddaughter, Miranda to come and spend
time with Camille and Jessica at your home and welcomed her with open arms. She loved being there and couldn't wait to get there. For this Boris, we are truly grateful as there were times when we knew you didn't feel up to it, but you insisted and never complained. You spoiled them all.

Boris, there are so many fond memories
thinking of having you in the Sunday School Class and sharing in the Marriage Enrichment Program as a team.

May God be with you LaVerne and the family and we will all see your loved once again on the other side.

"To everything there is a season under
the sun."
Love,
Mr. & Mrs. Scott

Laverne, no words right now can ease your pain of losing your loving husband and your friend but there is a man I know for myself who heals all hurt and pain in a timely manner. God doesn't make mistakes!! Praying for that "extra" strength that is needed right now for you and your family. I love you.

Life is full of twist and turns. Who would have thought that a life would have been taken away so early. Boris was truly as man after God's own heart. Now he reside in paradise with the All Mighty God. We will miss him on this side , for his work is done. he can now rest in the eternal heavens . I will cherish the memories of growing up with Tinker in Oakwood Estates, attending Bryan Station High School and worshipping The Lord at First Baptist and First African.
To the family, weep not as those who have no hope. For you know that God knows best and that you will see your loved one again.I am praying that God will be your strength and refuge!that

Dearest Cousin, there are no words to express how you are missed. The only comfort is knowing that you are having the sweetest of receptions in Heaven and that there is finally no more pain & suffering. And though, I dont know what life is like without you, your presence, and way you always called me "Sis"...I know I will see you again.
