grace and peace
I was sitting in my other office this afternoon, having office hours to which no one came, pondering whether I'm doing that good a job of explaining in class, or if they're just oblivious to the looming test (2 weeks, kids. 2 weeks.) . And an email came in on the weak wireless connection in office #2. It was my sister. Ruth Ann Foster passed away.
I didn't know Dr. Foster, but my sister has been her assistant for most of her years at Truett. She'd been sick for a long time, but knowing she would soon die didn't make it any easier. Dr. Foster was a role model, a mentor, and a friend to my sister, and to so many others. She will be missed.
