I have such fond memories of the Fosters, and I remember walking down to the drug store after school for pixie sticks. Mrs. Foster was such a gracious lady. She was such a beloved part of our town for so many years and was missed when your family moved away. I pray that the sweetest memories of your mom will now give you comfort in the difficult days ahead. My deepest sympathies.

So sorry for the loss of a sweet lady. She and my mom enjoyed band and church activities together.
Her flower arrangements were always gorgeous. May God hold you all in his arms.
