Papa, I will miss you more than you could ever know. I got to have you bless my husband and me in our wedding, and share stories about your parents and grandparents during visits. I love watching all the old family videos with you being a goofball. I know you are now with so much family that loves you, that you haven’t gotten to see in a long time! We will all be together again, someday, and I am happy to have another angel watching over my family.
I love you, love you, love you sooooooooooooo much!
To the Forest family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Thomas.
Very soon Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29.
