Williams, Carter

April 14, 2016 – September 28, 2023

It is with so much unconditional love in our hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful Carter on September 28, 2023.

There aren’t enough words to encapsulate Carter and his spirit. He is the strongest, most delicate and enchanting child. We are devastated to now try to navigate life without him teaching us how to carry on. 

Carter came into this world on April 14, 2016, the same way he left, too soon. He was born with a rare genetic disorder, GRIN1, but he was a fighter who never quit. We loved watching his progress, his personality and his skills grow. Carter loved life. He loved the wind, the sun, the sound of the chimes while in his swing. He changed the lives of so many around the world and we are immensely proud of the strong, stubborn child he had become. It is because of him that families across the globe are thriving with this life altering disorder. We will miss him with every fiber of our being.

Carter and his legacy will live on through his parents Lauren and Casey Williams, his sweet pups Evelyn and Rosalie, maternal grandparents Janet and Michael Craft, paternal grandparents Todd and Vivian Williams, Aunt Brittani and Uncle Rickey Mather, cousin Ava Mather, and many others who love and support us.

Carter enjoyed bright colors and the lights of life, so we request that you please dress as casually as Carter would. We want to celebrate a life so big, it captured the hearts of everyone he met. 

And always remember, everyone dies, but not everyone lives. Live like Carter. Visitation and services to celebrate Carters’ Life will be held on Friday , October 6, 2023 from 2pm to 4pm, at Greenwell Springs Baptist  In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made to the CureGRIN Foundation, www.CureGRIN.org Condolences may be offered at www.sealefuneral.com.

    Carter man, you have changed the world forever! No struggle is in vain baby boy. Because you are a trailblazer, many others will triumph in the face of adversity for years to come. Even more important, they won’t feel alone because of your heroic story. What a beautiful life you lived on earth, and I’m certain it is even more beautiful now for you. However, you are so loved that the grief here on earth is heavy. You will NEVER be forgotten. We are all so thankful for your seven years with us.

    “For I reckon that the present sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Romans 8:18)
    I loved Carter Man and all the joy he brought to everyone who knew him. And I love you both for loving him so completely and unconditionally. May God Bless and keep His hand on you

    We followed Carter’s journey through social media. Watching his progress, his beautiful smile and sass, and his fight has truly inspired me in Eleanor’s GRIN1 journey. We will always remember Carter for his sweet faces, his laugh, and his fighting nature. His light has spread throughout the GRIN community and will never be dimmed.

    I did not know your family or little Carter, but through this tribute, I can feel the love and loss. This has to be one of the most beautiful obituaries I have ever read. I am SO sorry you had to write one for your child. He is beautiful and I pray the memories you have with him will last you a lifetime.
    May God keep you close during this heart breaking time and may you see Carter’s gifts he is allowed to leave you throughout your lifetime. You will start seeing “signs” from him, I feel certain. Jesus allows my father and brother to leave me little “gifts” right when I need them most.
    Much love to you all!

    Lauren and Casey, it was with profound sadness to learn of the loss of your Son Carter! I only met him occasionally and was always impressed with that beautiful little Angel. Carter had limitations but he always smiled and tried his best. I did follow his journey and yours on Facebook trying to give Carter as much a normal life as you were able. You were absolutely successful in giving him the best of yourselves through your unconditional love and care. Your little Son is now without pain or limitations and in the arms of his heavenly Father where he is whole and happy! You will meet again one day and that will be a joyous reunion for it will be forever. I would hope the work and devotion you have given to Carter’s life in trying to find solutions to his disabilities continue in his name “Carter Man Can” to honor his memory always. Lauren, I have followed your advocacy and efforts to bring to light the insidious and often debilitating disabilities of GRIN1 children and know how much tireless research you and Casey have expended to be the voice for these children with your efforts. God bless you both always!
