Curt email me or call if you have time, would enjoy hearing from you again.
In the few months we knew Forest he became a friend. The teen Sunday School class loved singing “Amazing Grace” for him when we visited. We learned a lot from him and will miss him but are rejoicing that he is now in his heavenly home. Thoughts and prayers…
