I've known Forrest for many years now, and knew Catherine, because of working with them with their life insurance, and investments. They were always very friendly and pleasant people. They were frugal hard working people. Sammie you and all your family have my sympathy and prayers for your confort and peace.

Forrest will always be a special memory for me and my family. We became friends with Forrest awhile back as he became a friend to our mom at Garden Villa. He always had a smile and big hugs to share everyday with us and quickly grew to be more like family. Forrest always had the best stories and the friendship he showed to Mom was a great comfort, because we new she always had someone looking out for her. I am sure there was a big reunion in Heaven this week with lots of smiles . I would like to say a big Thank You to the Sare family for sharing your Sweet and Loving Forrest with our family. We love you Forest may you RIP

I got to know Forrest in the nursing home where he was with my mom. He came over everyday to check on her when they moved him from her dinning room. Even let her call him Daddy. Then when I was there I got a big hug a kiss on the cheek. After he met my husband that was always the first thing he asked "How's our boy?" When he got his new truck we took it up to show him and the smile on his face was priceless. We went outside and he checked it from head to toe. I got to see him one more time at Xmas and got to get one more big hug that man touched my heart and I'm so glad I got to know him. We will miss you Forrest
