From the Ward Family.. Sister Foster our prayers are with you and your family. We had wonderful times with you and Pastor Foster down at "The Haven." Pastor Foster baptized numerous members of my family and we all worked very closely together in many different positions. It was joy to do the Lord's work under the tutelage of Pastor Foster. So many wonderful memories but, to hear him sing "I Won't Complain" was just something to hear. Prayers for healing and understanding for you all as Pastor's journey is complete.

Mrs. Helen, we are praying for you and your family. Thank you Reverend Foster for being a compassionate man of God. This month 19 years ago YOU married two young 20 year olds who thought they were ready to take on the world. I remember smiling at you saying “Ced and I are trying to catch you and Mrs. Helen.” You smiled and said “Y’all are one of my success stories.” I will forever remember you and Mrs. Helen coming to visit dad (Tree) in the hospital in Dallas. We laughed, you encouraged, and prayed for us. I still remember being a young girl listening to you sing I won’t complain at Pilgrim Rest while Uncle Charles was on the organ!!! You will always have a place in our hearts Reverend Foster.
