I grew up next door to the Fosters. Edith was ahead of her time. Her art was amazing as was her gardening. Such a nice person and a great family to grow up with.They were truly fabulous neighbors! Living to 95 in her condition was well deserved. Sending my love to Joanie and Judy. Sorry I can’t make it down to Fl
