A family graveside gathering and burial will be held on May 20, 2022 at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Las Cruces NM for William James Foster, where he will be laid to rest beside the love of his life, Florence. William, 85, died April 29, 2022 in Las Cruces. He is finally at peace, after 20 years, 9 months and 19 days of missing Florence. They are now reunited in heaven.

Florence joined the business as the bookkeeper and inside sales, and as the business grew, they moved to Las Cruces NM in order to keep the business prospering.
