Jimmy Carter, 3 months into hospice, is aware of tributes, enjoying ice cream [View all]


Three months after entering end-of-life care at home, former President Jimmy Carter remains in good spirits as he visits with family, follows public discussion of his legacy and receives updates on The Carter Center's humanitarian work around the world, his grandson says. He's even enjoying regular servings of ice cream.

This is great news.
