Lawrence Foster, the grandfather of Kenneth Foster, jr, has passed away. He advocated tirelessly to prevent his grandson’s execution (which was commuted to life only six hours before the execution was scheduled to take place on August 30, 2007). He lobbied legislators and the governor, and attended numerous rallies, and other events. Here he is speaking to the press along with State Rep Harold Dutton at a press conference in the Texas Capitol to advocate for a bill to end the death penalty in law of parties cases. May everyone have someone on their side in rough times as true, faithful and courageous as Mr Foster!
