Monday, July 1, 2019Dearly beloved, I am very sorry for your loss. May you find peace in the Bible’s assurance that “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4), is able and promises to help you cope with your loss, as you “draw close” to him (James 4:8), and “throw all your anxiety” on him (1 Peter 5:7).

Monday, April 8, 2019To the Family of Mr. Foster (Drew), I was truly saddened to hear the new of Mr. Foster's passing. He was one of my English teacher's during my time at McCluer and was always pleasant to the students. He was a hard nosed coach, but someone that you could relate to and would always reach out and support the other teams. May God continue to keep you in the time of sadness. Sincerely, Tim Holloway McClure Class of 93

Sunday, April 7, 2019Drew lifted me each time we spoke. Gentleness was evident in his bearing and conversation. When he would stop by my office at Flo Valley he would recommend-books, movies, poems, songs, etc. The recommendations were usually products of a stream of consciousness type banter we’d whip up. I was mostly trying to hold on. I will miss him very much.

Saturday, April 6, 2019In all my years of teaching with Drew at McCluer High School, I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone, something that's difficult to do when you are a teacher. I left St. Louis fifteen years ago and haven't been in communication, but I remember his wry smile.

Saturday, April 6, 2019During our nearly 20 years together at St. Louis Community College, Drew was a colleague in the truest sense of the word, and his retirement from Florissant Valley left a massive void. To hear that he’s now passed is heartbreaking. For the past 10 years or so, Drew’s office was right across from mine, and there wasn’t a day that went by that he didn’t stop by to chat about sports, students, the weather, or whatever. But as the other remembrances show, Drew went out of his way to share moments like this with so many. He spent his time treating people well, having conversations, and trying to laugh at life. He loved puns and zombies and poetry and photography and so much else. He also did a lot of the little, unnoticed things that make a campus a community, whether it was his Poem-a-day efforts each April or his yearly collection of books for the Child Development Center. Drew was an original, and I’ll never forget him.

Saturday, April 6, 2019Mr. Foster was my 9th grade English teacher. He was the only one in the school district to figure out I had color dyslexia. I had been in SSD for many years before this day. My life changed the day we figured this out. I could read better and all the kids stopped making fun of me. Mr. Foster was a great teacher. To this day I still tell the amazing story about how an English teacher /soccer coach figured out a LD problem that the paid SSD staff could not. You will be greatly missed Mr Foster.

Friday, April 5, 2019Drew was a staple in the STLCC FV Photo Program/Art Department even though he was an English professor. He actually was in the first photo class I ever taught as an adjunct and never left. Drew loved the students and loved photography. He always had a camera in his hands. He was involved with the photo club, student trips, Art In, old Town Florissant festival. He and went on every photo club trip since I began working at the college. We took the students tons of places from San Francisco to road trips to New Mexico. He was my right arm, corralling the students from one place to another.. He was a dear friend and mentor for our students. We will miss you Drew.

Friday, April 5, 2019Mr. Foster was my teacher at Florissant Valley Community College. I took his Fantasy and Horror class. I am terrified of horror things, but I knew I had to face my fears, so I took his class and Mr. Foster gave me a new perspective on Horror. He always encouraged me to keep writing my fantasy stories and he would always ask me for new books to read and suggested some for me that were a little on the scary side sometimes but would keep me learning about Horror things so I wouldn't be so scared anymore. My heart broke when I read that he had passed away. Please know that Mr. Foster made a huge impact on my life and I will take his teachings with me wherever I go.

Thursday, April 4, 2019Dear Bob and Margie, I was so saddened to see about your brother passing at such a young age. What caught my eye was Carter-Ricks, and a few of the towns names. My Grandparents lived (beginning during the depression times) in Annada - MO - just after Elsberry. Carter Ricks did all our relatives funerals and most are buried at the Elsberry cemetery. My cousin and family (Warren David Hare - or CoCo - was a member of Star Hope Church (he passed several years ago from alzheimer's. He has two daughters still living. Coya Hare (married name?) and carrie Hare out of town, I am so sorry for your loss. Your brother looked like a very lively wonderful person. It would be quite a surprise if he knew any of our "kin" My aunt, Mary Ann Lovell ran the Thrashers Fair every year on her farm. May you all be at peace with knowing Drew resides in Heaven and is at peace.
