Dear Bill and Family

I would like to take this time to express my deepest sympathy to you and the family. Ann will surely be missed by all, including myself. Although as i write this with a heavy heart. I think back on the many wonderful times we all shared together. Ann was a good down to earth woman quick whitted, caring, and very opinionated. Ann was a person that did not have problem telling you what was on her mind. Bill and Ann where like surrogate parents during my preteen, teen and early adult life. they both where instrumental in teaching me many lessons in life and also helping me become the man i am today. At this time i would like to thank them both for all there love and support over the years. I shall miss Ann Greatly.

Dear Forehand Family,

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you. Few people touch our lives and stay in our memories forever. Mrs Forehand was one of those people for me. I was a student of hers. She was always kind and encouraging to a young student, who lacked selfconfidence. I remember a smile and pat on the back everyday as I left the classroom for the day. Her influence has meant a lot to me over the years. I hope you find comfort and peace in the memories of how she loved and gave so much. May God Bless your Family.

I was blessed to have Mrs. Forehand as an English teacher and the impact that she left on my life is still evident today. She pushed me to dream big and never settle for less. Her zest for life could be felt by all she touched. Too often in life we miss the opportunity to tell someone “THANK YOU” and although I might have missed my chance to express to my graditude to her directly…I want the family to know that she was well loved by her students and her memory shall forever live on in each of us. God Bless.

I didn’t know you mother personally but through working with you all these years I have heard many stories about her. : I remember you talking about having lunch with her on weekends. That is special because alot of people don’t have the opportunity. I know she was dear to you heart. I know it’s hard for you right now but I pray that you find confort and peace and her memories. Celebrate the good times you had with your mother and know that you have friends that will help you get through this.

God Bless you and your family,
