It was a sad day to hear that Mrs. Forbes had passed. Because of her wonderful sons, I was able to meet this most charming and gracious lady a number of years ago. I always looked forward to our long talks and the wisdom she shared with me. Her smile was infectious and the Pride and LOVE for her family was immense. I extend my sincere sympathy to the entire Forbes family and the only Wisdom that I can share is....Heaven gained an ANGEL this week.

I will always remember & appreciate our visits at the bank when I was with Coca Cola. Linda always had time to chat & give her support. What a sweet lady.

Mr. Jerry Forbes, David, Dean, Matt, Jordon and families,
We want all of you to know just how much our hearts are saddened to hear about Mrs. Forbes. From the very first time we met her, she welcomed us as if we were family. Always so friendly, kind, and sweet. One of our happiest memories with her is in Bowling Green as she made sure the annual Forbes BBQ was prepared and served with love. Never ever have we seen her without that infectious smile. She was the HUB of the infamous Forbes family. Thank you for sharing your lives with us and allowing us to be a part of your family. She has left a family legacy to carry on and felt that her work is now complete. She is with the Lord and you all can now take comfort in knowing she is well. We love all of you, guys!

I met Linda at a Scrapbook Retreat in the Great Smoky Mountains about 14 years ago. She has always had that beautiful smile and such an awesome sweet personality. She connected with us ladies and we have remained friends since that time. We always looked forward to our time together at the retreats. Prayers for the family...as I know how much you were loved by this wonderful lady. She will be missed by all of us, but especially family. She loved scrapbooking and sharing memories with us ladies of her family. Heaven gained a special angel. Welcome HOME!!!! We will see you again someday. :-) So many special memories....
