Dear Seahawk Families:
As many of you know we lost a Seahawk, Carter Smith, in a car accident over the weekend. The family has given me permission to share the service information with the community:
Carter’s funeral service will be at 4:00, Friday, November 8, 2019. The service will be held at The Church of the Good Shepherd United Methodist, 2351 Hunter Mill Road, Vienna 22181.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Smith family and all who have been impacted.
