“A Love Story for the Ages: Jimmy Carter’s Tribute to His ‘Equal Partner’ Rosalynn”

Following the passing of his cherished wife Rosalynn Carter, the former president Jimmy Carter thought back on their many years of marriage.

The former US first lady, Rosalynn, passed away on Sunday afternoon in her longtime Plains, Georgia, home at the age of 96. The Carter Centre sent a news statement stating that she passed away “peacefully, with her family by her side.”

The 99-year-old former president Carter stated in a statement that accompanied the photo, “Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished.” When I needed it, she offered me great advice and support. Rosalynn’s presence in the world ensured that I always have love and support from someone.”

The former first lady went into hospice care on Friday after receiving a dementia diagnosis in May. Due to his personal health issues, Jimmy stopped receiving medical treatment in February. He is still receiving hospice care at home.

On Monday, August 27, 2018, in Mishawaka, Indiana, former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, hold hands while they collaborate with other volunteers on the site during the first day of the week-long Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, their 35th work project with Habitat for Humanity.

After getting married in 1946, Rosalynn and Jimmy welcomed daughter Amy Carter and boys John William “Jack,” James Earl “Chip,” and Donnel Jeffrey “Jeff” into their family. In addition, they had 22 great-grandchildren.
Rosalynn was her husband’s ardent supporter and advisor during his meteoric rise to political prominence. She later embarked on initiatives to advance mental health.

She was the honorary chair of the President’s Commission on Mental Health during Jimmy’s 1977–1981 administration, and she ultimately contributed to the 1980 passing of the Mental Health Systems Act. She also supported artistic endeavours and initiatives.

The former president and first lady had a cute saying they used to communicate with each other: “ILYTG.” They were forever sweethearts.

“‘You have my undying love.'” “I learned that from Rosa, as that’s what my mother and father used to say back and forth,” the 39th president of the United States told PEOPLE in 2014. Nowadays, every one of our kids sends or receives emails with the identical message, ILYTG. Usually, they merely write the initials.”
