Deepest condoĺences to Barbara and family. Sorry for your loss.
My sympathies to all the family and friends of Forrester. He came to my aid in 2002 when I had to locate the wellhead for my drilled well. Forrester came down and within a few short minutes had identified the exact spot where it was buried!
His memory was excellent and he was a great help.

This is Heather, Bea and Ernie Selig’s daughter. My heart goes out to you all. I’m sure my Mom and Dad are laughing it up with Uncle Forrester as we speak. The two brothers are back together. May you feel comforted knowing he is in a great place.
