    My heart goes out to each and every one . Forrest and Sally was such a joy to have at Lutheran Village and Sally will be deeply missed!
    I would always commend her on her ability to put up with the “jokester” Forrest! and she would always reply with a sweet smile ” I don’t know how I did it”.

    I truly became really attached to your parents and thought as them as my own. The love they shared was just so visible , it really was uplifting.

    Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to become friends of your parents!
