Beloved husband, brother, faher, grandfather, teacher and friend. These are the words that come to mind as we remember Robert Grant Forsythe. A simple mam, who spent his entire life with only his family's needs in mind. A day will not pass without thinking of your smile, and your kind and giving heart. You may have not given a second thought to your influence on this world, but in the eyes of those that loved you, you were and always will be that world, and that will be forever etched on our hearts. Rest now Dad, we will take it from here.
