  1. Dear Tom & all the Foty Family;
    Susie & I grieve with you this day, but more importantly, we REJOICE with you all through the Promises given to us by the Lord, Christ Jesus that he now takes your wonderful Dad, Uncle Joe Foty, unto Himself, seated at the foot of His throne of Grace unto Eternity. Those of us believers left behind now look forward to His Day Full of Grace {as we sing in the awesome Hymn of that name} when we will join our loved ones face to face; Uncle Joe, We'll surely miss all your great stories about & jokes from the old Jefferson Bus Garage...Your wonderful Family is a testament to your love for Christ Jesus; you've been such a Blessing to each of us you leave behind and to your Heavenly Father each day of your life; Well Done Thou Good and faithful Servant! ....Much love from Steve & Susie in Silverdale, WA.
