Rachel it's took me almost a year to grieve you leaving this earth. You had many nieces but you seem to favor me like I was your daughter. Yet as youthful as you always were you were more like my big sister. As we went about all those years on trips Dr's visits hospital stays etc church and talking to way into the morning laughing about a bird that would not stop chirping and all the visits from my house to your house and to mama's you certainly was a big part of my life. I MISS YOU SOOOO MUCH. The only comfort I have is to know you gave your all to life here and you are safe in God's arms now.. will always love you Aunt Rachel and I did the best I could do for you the last years of your life..I know mama told me take care of Rachel and I did my best....love Deborah

Dear Family, So sorry for your loss. I am Bertie & Herbert Foster's daughter, Audrey.
There are many fond memories of Rachel, and her family. I took my mother , Bertie Foster to Hardee's in Lenoir. Those cousins had a wonderful time reminiscing about events in their young lives, enjoying life. I attended a play in Valdese, Marie was there. Good memories.
Take care, Audrey F. Bost

Rachel was a wonderful aunt. I loved to talk with her and to hear her tell about family events present and past. I liked to hear her laugh. I remember a Christmas at her house when her sisters and my father were there and I took a photo of them that I will always cherish. She was always kind, considerate and loving.
