Thanks for your patience in teaching an office boy the nuances of moving and operating cranes in all conditions when we worked together.

I met Jamie way back in 1995 on a job in Pensacola and worked with him for a long time at L R Willson. He was top notch and the “best of the best”! Always a real treat to work with ( and party with). Definitely had a sense of humor! May you Rest In Peace colonel Foster! I’ll hoist a Budweiser to you my friend.
My deepest sympathies to the family...sorry can’t make it to the services.
