It's not yet known how much of the events Jimmy Carter, her husband of 77 years, will attend. "It all depends on his health," said the couple's son, Chip Carter, to The Washington Post. Jimmy Carter entered hospice care in February. Chip Carter said he was having a suit made since none of his suits currently fit due to his ill health.
