“After a year in hospice, on a daily basis we have no expectations for his body, but we know that his spirit is as strong as ever,” Jason Carter shared in a video that aired on Sunday Morning.

A second statement released the same day by Carter’s foundation expressed similar sentiments.

“One year after entering hospice care, President Carter continues to be at home with his family. The Carter Family is grateful for the many expressions of love they have received and the continued respect for their privacy during this time. The family is pleased that his decision last year to enter hospice care has sparked so many family discussions across the country on an important subject.”

Despite receiving end of life care for the last 12 months, Carter was able to attend his wife’s funeral.

Carter left many in tears when he attended the service draped in a blanket that celebrated his and Rosalyn’s longtime love and marriage. The black and white blanket showcased a portrait of Rosalynn and himself with the text “The Carters” and “Est. 1885” embroidered on it, which honored the town where they met as children, Plains, Georgia.
