  1. My sympathies to the Fosnot family . Mrs. Fosnot was the sweetest. May she be with God and all of her family and friends she had outlived here on earth.

  2. My heartfelt sympathies to the Fosnot family .I’ve always referred to Mary as “Ellie and Charles’ Aunt Mary” … I’m going to miss her waving to my bus 3 or 4 times a day from her porch in nice weather as she’s done for many, many years. Rest in peace, Mary.
