Funeral services were held Thursday for the Rev. Dr. Mack King Carter.
To accommodate the throngs of mourners wanting to pay their final respects to the dynamic preacher, there was a last-minute location change to the First Baptist Church at 301 E. Broward Blvd. instead of at New Mount Olive Baptist Church.
A service Saturday in Ocala remains the same as originally planned. There will be an 8 a.m. viewing and 11 a.m. service at New St. John Baptist Church, 2251 NW Second St., Ocala.
Carter’s widow, Patricia Carter, has requested that instead of flowers, donations be made to Dr. Mack King Carter Memorial, Florida Memorial University, 15800 NW 42nd Avenue, Miami Gardens. For more information about the memorial, call 305-626-3600.The Rev. Carter's burial will be private.
