What a great woman! Our family has known Garnet Forrest for 14 years. She was our neighbor and friend. She watched both of my children grow up and was always interested in how our family was doing. If the weather was accommodating, she would be outside walking the neighborhood or addressing her yard. I loved seeing her smiling face and hear her tender remarks. We will miss her dearly!
