Best regards,

Lynn and Rhodes, We were so sad to hear of Forest's passing. We fondly remember our baseball days at Morgan Falls and Forest is a big part of that memory. He was so great with the boys and was a wonderful role model.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Lynn and Rhodes,

The Murphy family (previously of Sandy Springs, now in Winnetka Illinois) is saddened to hear of Forrest's death. He was truly a man of character and one of the best baseball coaches we have ever encountered. Our hearts go out to your family as you come to terms with the hand you have been dealt.

I just heard about Forrest's death from Monty Watson.I am so sorry that I have not seen him or you in recent years.What an entertaining guy he was! Forrest was one of my first bosses at First Atlanta, and I learned a lot about connecting with and relating to clients and people from him. He was larger than life, and will be greatly missed.

Julie joins me in sending condolences.

Forrest was a fair and good man. The kind of man who you could do business with on a handshake. We at CCP will dearly miss him. Our condolences to Chip and the rest of his family during this time.

My heartfelt condolences go out to your family. I have leased space in Heritage Village in Snellville for over 7 years. It was always a pleasure conducting business with him, even during very difficult times. Forrest was a true gentleman and a fair and compassionate businessman. He will be missed by many.
