Jimmy Carter, clad in a black suit and tie, made a rare public appearance earlier this week at the memorial ceremony for his late wife, Rosalynn Carter.
After declining more medical attention, the former president accepted hospice care in February, and he was present to comfort his wife during her final hours of life before she died.
Carter allegedly attended Rosalynn’s funeral ceremony in a wheelchair with the help of his children at Atlanta’s Glenn funeral United Methodist Church.
Before the memorial ceremony, Jason Carter, the grandson of Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, provided an update on his grandfather’s health, speculating that the 39th President of the United States would not survive long.
Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter had known each other since they were youngsters in Plains, Georgia, and had spent nearly their entire lives together.
As a result, it made sense that the two were together on Saturday, November 19, during Rosalynn’s dying moments. Given that the former First Lady was 96 years old, her death was not unexpected, but many people have taken the time to remember her life on Earth after her death.
Rosalynn died on November 19 at 2:10 p.m. in her Plains, Georgia, home, according to reports. From 1977 to 1981, she served with her husband in the White House, but in the intervening years, she has worked on humanitarian programs through the Carter Center.
President Jimmy Carter, who had been receiving hospice care for more than ten months, flew from Plains to Atlanta for his wife Rosalynn’s burial. That is how a genuine love tale finishes. With regard. tweet.com/lPu4dt3J52

Rosalynn and Jimmy’s health has deteriorated over the last year. Jimmy Carter refused medical treatment for a variety of health conditions and entered hospice care in February.
Jimmy’s health is expected to worsen rapidly now that Rosalynn has died.
Jason Carter, Rosalynn’s grandson, appeared to corroborate this to the New York Post before to her funeral.
“He’s coming to the end, and he’s very, very physically diminished,” he said.
“He has been this moral rock for so many people, but she really was that rock for him.”
During Rosalynn’s poignant memorial service, Amy Carter, the couple’s daughter, read a letter from Jimmy to his wife when he was away serving in the Navy.
“My darling, every time I’ve ever been away from you, I have been thrilled when I returned to discover just how wonderful you are,” he said in the letter. “When I see you, I fall in love all over again.”
Rest in peace, Rosalynn Carter. Please join me in praying for the Carter family.
