    Mr. Foster was an important part of my formative years having spent several years playing ball with Cindy, spending the night at each other’s houses, camping with both families. My heart breaks for you as I know how loved he is and how important his love is and I pray for comfort. I am thankful that he was such a strong Christian man because that is such a beautiful testimony for a life well lived. I pray Greg greeted him with the biggest hug as they are in the presence of Jesus together now.

    Jesse was such a sweet and caring man. He was always ready and willing to help out his neighbors. He use to always stop and visit on his daily walks. He will be missed by his little neighborhood. Hold on to love he had for you all, life lessons that he taught, and all the wonderful memories that were made. Prayers for you all.
