Representative Richard Foster – Our family, Our friend, Our Advocate
I unpacked boxes from storage and found my most recent diary. This journal is titled “My Daily Inspirational Journal”. I began this journal in 2009.
This being the first entry I share from this journal, coupled with the title of the journal, makes this entry from October 13, 2009 the right one.
October 13, 2009 – Our family member, Our friend, Our advocate has passed away this evening. This is my humble perspective and part in such a person. Richard Foster has been (as well as his whole family) a significant character in our lives.
In 1988, Richard was running for the House of Representatives. He asked my parents if I would go to Juneau with him and work for him. This is where I wanted to go.
However, that New Years I found out I was pregnant with my beautiful daughter, Rachel Anderson-Horton.
I didn’t take that path, that opportunity. Yet he (Richard) planted a mustard seed in my life and I in turn hope to pass those seeds along to others. God Bless and God Speed.
