Another Star in Heaven

 

 

 

As dawn beckons the rising sun, each morning starts anew

We count our many blessings, or stormy winds that blew,

 

Our lives are given to the Earth, yet of which they came

Though our souls are a gift of Heaven, A star without a name

 

We choose our paths and lift the cross, burdens we must bear

And weave in to our tapestry, friend’s sorrows we might share

 

Yet when our time on Earth is done, our pains and sorrows quell

On Angel wings our spirits glide, with a heavenly chorus swell

 

Come evening a new light shines, its brilliance we recognize

For our dear departed loved ones, are the brightest stars in the skies.

Forrest started working at age 16 and didn't retire until after age 80.
He Attended BYU before joining the Army Air force in 1943 and became a commissioned officer
and pilot in 1944. He piloted over 100 flights in world war 2 in a B-17

Forrest was "One Hell of a Man" and an awesome step dad. He will be dearly missed.

Godspeed Forrest
