Betty, Bobby and family, We are so sorry to hear about Forest. Mark was telling some of his memories of Forest and as always, what a wonderful man he thought Luther was. All good wishes go out to you all. Mark & Liz Mark & Liz Warrick, April 16, 2009 I just found out about Forest today, I can't tell you how sad I am to hear this. I worked in Activites @ Provident and he was a joy. The world has lost a very special sweet person, I will never forget him. Veda Babb, March 30, 2009 Kenneth and Jo, We were so saddened when we read that Forest had died. What a truly caring spirit God has added to His heavenly family! I remember him from 50 years ago, when we first moved to Allen and we all went to First Baptist. Your mother and father and Forest always sat in the pew in front of us. He was always sweet and kind to me as a child. He had such a loving heart. He will be missed by many! Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. Dalma and Pat Pat McBride, March 28, 2009 Jo and Kenneth, I was so sorry to read of Forest had passed away. I remember him so well from all the years we saw him at the clinic. My thoughts are with you. Penny Penny Apple Trosper, March 24, 2009 I grew up with Forest as we had mutual kinfolks. He had a sweetness that adults almost always never have...My Dad use to save tv tube boxes for Forest to play with and Forest always looked forward to those. Condolences to the family.
