The company for whom the late Realtor Beverly Carter worked has posted on their Facebook page an open letter to those who knew and loved Carter, and to those real estate agents and volunteers who joined in the four-day search that ended Tuesday.
Crye-Leike, Carter's real estate association, recently posted this on their Facebook page:
On behalf of the owners, management and the entire Crye-Leike family, we would like to express our deepest condolences to the Carter Family for their loss. Our hearts are heavy for the pain and suffering this terrible event has caused them.
To those who knew and worked with Beverly, she was a gracious mentor, quick to help a new agent by providing them a listing to hold open or just encouraging... them. She had an infectious laugh that brightened the whole office; a beautiful smile that warmly greeted those she met or worked with. Yet, she was also the top listing agent in a competitive office. She lived out her faith in the way she treated others. Above all, Beverly was a loving wife, grandmother of 4 and mother of two living children. She will be sorely missed.
In addition, we'd like to express our appreciation to all the friends, concerned Realtors and fellow brokers from across the state and country who reached out to us in support of her family and Crye-Leike at this time.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the volunteers who have been tireless in assisting law enforcement with search and rescue efforts since last Thursday. Associates from all over Arkansas along with groups from other states, including other Realtor firms and members of the general public, have been extremely kind and hardworking from early morning until dark over these last few days.
Finally, we want to thank everyone for the love, support, and prayers they have offered on behalf of the Carter family.
Arrangements will be announced when completed, in accordance with the family's wishes.
With deepest condolences,
Harold and Dick
