Forrest, is a great guy, I knew him for many year's, he built my house 30 years ago I think about the great time we had doing it almost every day. He was the best in the business for sure, him and Sue will always be in my memories, God bless them both.
I bet he's in heaven driving a new RED ford truck around the neighborhood.
