Perry's Prattle

Melissa concluded her remarks with: “He was a man of dignity and class. He would stand from his chair when a woman entered a room. Sunday, the day that he had the stroke, there was a storm and he called to see if I needed him to come over. I’m four months shy of 50 years old and he still was looking out for me.”

Bill Foster’s greatest love was family. They were with him on Friday night when he died at Vanderbilt Hospital after suffering the stroke on Sunday night. In addition to family already mentioned, he was the proud grandpa of Nicholas and Cody Foster.

Bill and Anne celebrated their 50 years of marriage on March 12, 2012.

Visitation was held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at Christ Chapel from 5-7 p.m. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service followed at 7 p.m. with Pastors Doc Shell and Jimmy Hayes officiating. Elkins Funeral Home of Florence was entrusted with funeral arrangements.

The “prattler” considers it an honor to have known Dr. Bill Foster and his family. It is also my privilege to write this short tribute to his loving memory.
