The former president of the United States and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, are “still holding hands” as they start their “final chapter” together at their home in Plains, Georgia, according to the grandson of the former president of the United States.

“It’s clear we’re in the final chapter,” Josh Carter said of his grandparents, the first pair between 1977 and 1981, in an interview that was published by People magazine on Saturday.

In February, Jimmy Carter, who was 98 at the time, underwent hospice care with the goal of “spending his remaining time at home with his family.” The Carter family revealed in May that Rosalynn Carter, who is 96 years old, suffers from dementia.

“My grandparents have always been the entertainers,” Josh Carter said in an interview with People magazine. However, it seems like we are the ones who are going to have to do the entertaining now. It’s a different era, so of course things are going to be different.
According to what he stated, his grandfather was “still fully Jimmy Carter.”Simply put, he’s worn out. In spite of the fact that he is approaching 99 years old, he has experienced love.

According to Josh, his grandma “still knows who we are, for the most part – that we are members of the same family.” My grandmother is able to create new memories up to this day.”

1946 marked 77 years since the Carters tied the knot. Prior to his election as the Democratic candidate for governor of Georgia in 1971, Jimmy Carter served in the United States Navy. He defeated the Republican candidate for president, Gerald Ford, and won the presidency in the bicentennial election held in 1976.

Some people referred to Rosalynn Carter as the “Steel Magnolia” because of how influential she was as first lady during her husband’s first four years in power. An insider at the White House told the Observer in 1980 that Rosalynn Carter was “a great second line of defence” who could convince her husband “to change his mind.”

“I am in the eye of history,” Rosalynn Carter declared at one point. I am aware of the influence I have, and I take pleasure in it.

Josh Carter told People that it “has got to be hard” for the former president to watch his wife suffer with dementia, but that “on the other hand, they’ve experienced everything that you can together.” Josh Carter was speaking about the former president and his wife Rosalynn Carter. The fact that they are still together is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful things about it.

It’s incredible that they are still holding hands after all this time.
Ronald Reagan, the Republican candidate who won the presidency in 1980 by defeating Jimmy Carter, passed away in 2004 at the age of 93. George H.W. Bush, the Republican who succeeded Reagan as president, passed away in 2018 at the age of 94. The president who served the longest was Jimmy Carter. It is generally agreed upon that he had the most success during his post-presidential tenure.

After leaving office, Carter participated in international diplomatic efforts and advocated for charity causes. The Nobel Peace Prize was bestowed to him in the year 2002 “for his decades of unrelenting effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development.”

Now, Josh Carter has shared with People that he believes “the odds are I’m going to lose my grandfather before I lose my grandmother.” Simply put, the numbers don’t work out for her to receive hospice care while he does.

Joe Biden stated in March that Jimmy Carter had asked him to deliver the former president’s eulogy.
