Dorsey Lewis Foster, Pa went to his heavenly home on Independence Day 2010 to be reunited with Granny, Ida Faye Foster.
Pa was 91 when he passed away and was born July 23rd of 1918.
He was a hard worker and had a strong belief in God.
He loved his family, all of the grandkids, and great-grandchildren.
When I would stay the night with Pa and Granny as a little girl, Pa and I would sneak into the kitchen to eat ice cream at midnight together. Granny would always “catch” us and just shake her head. He loved to tell stories about his life ,he was a wonderful storyteller, and even liked to show off every once in a while. A good example is when Pa stunned some of the grandkids with a one armed flip over the clothesline pole in the backyard. He adored my Granny and they always sat side by side on the couch together. I remember that often he would drift off to sleep and take a nap leaning on her shoulder.
He was ready to be with her once again up in heaven.
Funeral is scheduled for Wednesday, July 7, at 12:30 p.m. at House-Gregg Funeral Home chapel in Walnut Ridge. Burial will follow at 2:00 pm, Lawrence Memorial Park Cemetary where he will be laid to rest beside his loving wife Ida Faye Sullivan Foster

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

I love you Pa~
Lisa
