Mr Minney. I'm sooo sorry for the typos.

I visited Mr Kinney lots of times, we were friends. We chatted about gardening, Christmas tress and life. I moved away from the kipton area and lost touch. I did think of him often. Bought several Christmas trees through the years and he shared some of his "green thumb" secrets. He bought me my first alumin bulb. He's was my friend and I'm sorry I didn't get to see him more. My heart is with his family. I'll miss you.

I was Shelley's pen pal from 3rd grade through college. Then we lost track. I was trying to locate her when I came across this notice. I am so sorry for your loss. It has been a long time since we wrote but we shared a lot over the years. I'm sorry I couldn't offer my sympathy in a more personal way. With deepest sympathy. Leslie Carey

I don't know Forest or any of you. I read his obit and just wanted to pay respects to him and his family. I read that he was in the Battle of the Bulge and, when I see the vets from WWII and think of what courage and pride they must have had it makes me sad to see them go. The men and women from that war and any other shouldn't be forgotten.
