Karen and family, I am so sorry about the passing of your mom. I have sweet memories of Mrs McCarter when I was a little girl. I would spend time with your family when my mother was the assistant dorm mother and dietician at Chilhowee. I also have good memories of her when I was a student at Chilhowee in my teens. Prayers for your family as you grieve her passing and as you celebrate her life.
