Dearest Friends and Family,
Our dear Forrest has died. He was brother, son, partner, father, friend, nephew, cousin, coworker, big help and smile bringer to many of us. He died suddenly, collapsing into Aimee’s arms. Although his time on Earth was way too short, he left from a place of good health and happiness, having achieved most recently great satisfaction with projects on his land.
Listed below are a few ways to memorialize Forrest. If you are on the West Coast, there will be a circle at Three Springs. On the East Coast, Forrest’s old friend Tommy Donohue is putting something together. For those of you on other continents and in between, please take a moment to look up at the stars, with a reflection.
This Saturday, July 7th, 4:30 – 8:30 PM (3:00 PM for Tie-Dye)
Memorial at Three Springs
59820 Italian Bar Road, North Fork, CA 93643
3:00 PM You may come early for a memorial tie-dye session (bring your own cotton items).
5:00 PM Gather for pot-luck
6:30 PM Circle, followed by procession with musical instruments up to Forrest’s land, 1/2 mile walk. Returning to Three Springs at sunset.
8:30 PM Jam afterwards for those who wish to stay.
Please bring a rock for creating a cairn at Whiskey Heights. A cairn is an assemblage of rocks, associated with Hermes, the god of overland travel.
Remembrance on the East Coast
Contact Tommy Donahue will be putting together a commemoration with music, root beer and sweet words in a location that will be utterly suitable remembering Forrest – or as some may recall him as Tyco. Tommy: firstname.lastname@example.org
Post Cards to Dylan
Forrest’s son Dylan has just turned 18 and graduated High School. Dylan has only heard a sampling of many of the stories that make up the colorful tapestry of Forrest’s life of travel throughout the US, concerts, festivals, projects, inventions and connection with friends. Please consider writing an anecdote or memory on a post card so that we may create a collection for Dylan.
