I’m sad at the passing of Kenny Foster. For almost my entire life he was a beloved cousin by marriage. Always a kind and decent man in my experience, he and my cousin Vivian showed us all what true love looks like. He battled hard to stay with her, and my hope is that he now rests in peace. Heart felt condolences to Viv, Charles David, Bunny, Gene, Cynthia and Shannon. ~Beth

I'm very sorry for your loss. I was two years behind Ken in school. I met him again at Down River Golf Course and watched him work and play often. I was also behind him in the game of golf. He was better at golf than I am. He will be miss greatly by many at Down River. I am sorry.
