The Meshell family rode many hours with Mr. Forrest. Herbert and Sudie were great friends and are deceased before him.
He could really grow a nice greens patch and generously shared them.
Condolences for the Arp family from the Meshell's, Janice, Herby, and Vonnita.

Dear Dorothy and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Your husband / Dad was a very sweet man. We will miss him greatly here, but he will be welcomed by many there. I can see him and Master Bill riding the trails!!

I am very sorry to hear of Forrest passing. He was a very special person and I loved him dearly! I met Forrest years ago through our love for horses and going on weekend trail rides. We have many wonderful memories involving rides at the Davidson Foundation and going on weekend trail rides at Chireno. When he stopped riding he would call me and we would catch up. I loved that he keep in touch and looked forward to each call. I actually bought Cinco, my Tennessee Walking horse, from him. Cinco was a dream to ride standing 16h and rode like a rocking chair. Forrest will be greatly missed and I will think of him with a smile. He and Ms. Dorothy are a wonderful part of my memories.

With Love,
Judy Rice <><

To all our family:

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are sent to you as you gather for Uncle Frosty's celebration on life. I will always remember his sense of humor and his smile. I think Frosty had as much fun at the Family reunions as anyone.

Though I did not personally know him for very long, I have to say it was very clear he had a heart of gold. He was always so kind to me, so friendly with the little ones, and smiled quite often. I love this photo I got of him this past Christmas, un-be-known that it would be his last. He was very interested in this electronic toy that Weston just received. It was such a sweet moment that I treasure. I can’t imagine the loss he has left for all of the family, but he will be missed greatly by me, for sure. Condolences to everyone who holds him dearly in their hearts. He is a great man and I can only hope to be as sweet as him!
