Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the country's longest-living president, celebrated his 99th birthday on Sunday. Carter, who is continuing to receive hospice care at his home in Plains, Georgia, remains an iconic figure in American politics. Despite his age and health challenges, he has displayed remarkable resilience and determination.
The frail-looking Carter briefly left hospice care to attend the memorial service for his wife of 77 years, Rosalynn, who passed away at the age of 96. This gesture demonstrated the deep love and commitment he had for his lifelong partner. The presence of every living U.S. first lady at the memorial service highlighted the respect and admiration the Carters have garnered throughout the years.
After a series of short hospital stays, Jimmy Carter decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family. This decision reflects his desire to cherish the precious moments with his loved ones. Despite his health struggles, he remains focused on creating lasting memories and ensuring that his family remains his top priority.
