NEW YORK (WFAN) – Mets fans thank Gary Carter, for all that he did and all that he was.

New York lost one of its favorite sons on Thursday.

There’s so much to remember about Carter — what he did and who he was.

He was the final piece to that Mets puzzle. There was the home run to win his first game in New York. Of course, his refusal to make the final out in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.

That told you what kind of fighter and competitor he was.

And then there was that smile.

Carter could light up a room with a grin from here to there.

He could brighten a room, brighten a city.

And he did.
