Forrest was a special person. I met him at Rosewood a few years ago while my uncle was a resident there.. My wife and I have continued to visit Rosewood and we always enjoyed talking to Forrest. He loved God and it showed in his conversation. We saw him about two or three weeks ago. As usual when we started to leave he said, "I hope the Lord is good to you". It will not seem the same to visit Rosewood and not see him. Our prayers go out to the family. Take peace in knowing that Forrest is in a better place.
