Mike Foster tried to kill me more than once. I am surprises Kiki never said anything about what he did to her. This guy needs to be put away forever no matter what his excuse is. He abandoned me on Maui when he went to New Zealand. Ask Bay of Islands Sowrd Fish Club. Talk to Chris Britten. See what he did there. He stold my money, gave away expensive belongs of mine when first shipped to Maui from San Diego. Tried to leave me in ocean 5 miles off Lani in the middle of the night during a Wahinee fishing tournament. A guy named Mark saved my life that night. I can go on and on about what this man did to me. Many police reports filed. Ana sorry I did not know about your law suit. I would have been there in a second. He never divorced me. So much for justice. Was not worth my time to deal with John Thomas Foster
and I was lucky to get away alive.
