I am very lucky and forever grateful to have received the unconditional love, care, and support my Grandma gave to me. She was one of those people you were just drawn to because she was inherently good, honest, and filled with light. She taught me empathy, love, and mostly importantly, integrity; to do the right thing even when no one is watching. She had such a positive impact on so many lives and she will be greatly missed. She is at peace. I love you always, Grandma.

Thomas, I enjoyed this video. Your mother was a big part of my career at Yadkinville School. She was always giving with a loving heart. She touched each of us. I especially remember when you were in my fifth grade class. It was fun. My thoughts are with you and your family. Kay Allred Mathis

Mrs Foster was always an advocate for children, both hers and others. I had the delightful opportunity to spend time with her when my children were young and she was very engaged with her grandchildren.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. I know she will be greatly missed.

In memory of my cousin Frances and for all her family. We miss Frances' smile and sunny disposition. We think about her teaching, her love of family, many family reunions, food, stories, and the love that binds us. We are never ready to give up our parents, our friends, our siblings, our cousins, our grandparents, our children. I trust we will continue all the good things that Frances did and maintain the values her mother and father held sacred. Let us carry on.
