Hi Eagle Point,
Birmingham Police Department and surrounding community suffered a tragic loss on Saturday
night when Sergeant Wytasha Carter, age 44, was killed in the line of
duty. This hits especially close to home, as the Carters are residents of
Eagle Point. First and foremost, consider the Carter family in your
prayers. There will be a viewing/visitation in Trussville on Friday and
the funeral on Saturday at The BJCC.
Much of what an HOA does feels insignificant in light of this kind of tragedy. We are reminded that we are neighbors who can and should be there for each other in times of need. The Board has been in communication with the Carter family to determine how best to help them in the coming days, weeks, and months.
The HOA will be honoring Sergeant Carter by placing memorial ribbons on stop signs throughout Eagle Point. We will also be sending flowers to his memorial service on behalf of the neighborhood.
If youd like to donate gift cards to restaurants or grocery stores to help with the familys needs, you can drop them off at the HOAs management office at 4000 Eagle Point Corporate Drive.
Part of the support were going to provide is yard maintenance for the remainder of 2019 repairs for their recently damaged mailbox. If youd like to contribute towards this effort, you can drop off a check payable to EPHOA and Sgt. Carter in the memo line.
We will communicate future efforts as they are determined. In the meantime, take a minute to introduce yourself to a neighbor you dont know or to say hello to someone you havent seen in a while.
