The family of Allen “Rabbit” Carver would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kindness and assistance shown to my father and family.  Thank you to Cherokee EMS for your quick response; Mission Memorial Heart Tower for the exemplary care given to our Dad; and, Vickie McCoy for being there for us and for making the beautiful arrangement for Dad’s casket.  A very special thank you to Vera Rathbone and Robert Lee Carver for assisting us with the funeral costs and for the emotional support, both then and now.   Thank you to Marsha Ensley,  Loretta Kirby and Qualla Housing for the dinner following the services catered by Granny’s Kitchen. Also, a big, heart-felt thank you to Janet Arch and Aunt Linda Wiggins for everything you’ve done for our family and for always being there for us. Thank you to the singers and to all the innumerous people who brought food, shared stories and who offered a shoulder to cry on. Thanks to Pastor Richie Sneed for officiating the services and to the pall bearers: Dwayne Wiggins, Justin Carver, Johi Griffin, Roy Bradley, George Burgess, Boomer, Bart Campbell and CBC Construction and Facility Department for preparing the grave site. Apologies to Abbygayle and Roy Bradley for the misspelling of your names.

This has been and will continue to be, a difficult time for us and we can never express our appreciation and gratitude to each and every person who has been there for us during the passing of both our Mother and Father this past year; just please know that we love you all. If we have omitted anyone, please forgive us and we hope you know that every kind word and prayer spoken to us and on our behalf is greatly appreciated. God bless you all and please continue to keep our family in your prayers.


Chad, Rhonda, Abbygayle and Statham
