View Full Version : Forrest Ernst
Sheila Oliver just called and reported the sad news of Forrest Ernst passing this morning. Forrest was one incredible person, a farrier second to none, a friend to all, and was more than happy to beat you badly on the golf course. I'll miss the visits during Rock Creek as we 'd relive the times of the past, and Heaven just got a new ray of sunshine....here's to you, my friend. RKR
