“We have always been grateful for the two beautiful lives we created together: our children, Jessica and James,” Carter continued. “They are the lights of my life, and were the greatest joy of Robert’s. I see so much of Robert in them, and I know he lives on through them.
“To all the fans who have shared their condolences: Jessica, James, and I want to say thank you. We especially love hearing about the times you met Robert at concerts or through his work in the gaming world. He loved meeting you and hearing your stories.”
Carter also wrote a heartbreaking message for Altman.
“To Robert: You are the most honorable person that I have ever had the privilege to know,” she said. “And I got to be your wife and the mother of your children. Thank you for giving me all the love in my life.”
