'Till We Meet Again

On January 22nd we laid our mom and nana, Andrea Forsyth, to rest next
to her eternal companion. We had a beautiful service that paid
tribute to the wonderful woman we will all miss dearly. Good-bye
mom-- 'till we meet again.

    Dustin, Alisha & Corbert, Daniel & Emily, Darren & Jamie, Doug & Jodie, and all the Forsyth Grandchildren; One of the hardest things I've ever experienced was not being able to attend Andrea's funeral to celebrate her amazing & incredible life! When you were gathered together on that snowy day to share sweet words in prayer & praise to a Heavenly Father who knows & loves Andrea even more than we do, I was at home in Colorado. My mind filled with memories of a 40 year friendship, of much laughter, of all too many tears, of trips to California, of house modelings, of life & love! I thought of the blessing it was to share many hours with Andrea in her hospital room just days before her earthly life ended. Holding her hand, singing to her, massaging her feet were small acts of kindness for a great lady who taught me so much about loving and enduring. My thoughts have been especially with Dustin. He called our home in the wee hours of Jan 18. Dustin didn't have time to say much other than "This is Dustin." Dustin, I am glad you phoned us at 2 am. I knew immediately what the phone call meant, even though you didn't say the words. How hard it is for you and the rest of your family and my prayers will continue in your behalf that the laughter and love and kindness shared by Mother will fill your hearts and lives. Much love, Susie Allen

    ~People I Have Looked Up to in My Life~
    By: Nicholas Forsyth

    I have looked up to many people in my life but if I had to narrow it down to one person I cant. So what I’m going to do Is narrow it down to two wonderful people. The first one being my grandfather Doug Forsyth or Papa. The second person is my grandmother Andrea L. Forsyth or as we call her Nana. I hope you get to know them a little more as you read about why I look up to them so much.

    Now if you knew my grandfather you would know he is very loving and also very funny. He would always take us fun places like Nickel-Cade and the Dollar Store. Now my grandmother loved to sing as do I but her singing was just a hobby compared to the Utah school board. We would always call her the queen of the schools and I would always want to be one day the King of the schools.

    My grandparents where to grate people my grandma fought for my uncle Dustin who has downs syndrome so he could go to normal school but she new she could do better by being the best grandma ever! My grandpa wasn’t all fun and games you know he was a hard working man that always put us his family before his self! He got my grandma this plack that said Nana means love well it goes for both of them or as Nana says Papa means Money!

    It wasn’t to long ago that my grandfather died of a blood clot but that didn’t stop my grandmother no no it didn’t. But as a few years gone bye we came to find out my grandma had cancer but she was still strong. She was so strong she fought off the cancer. But sadly the kemo drained her and she died last winter from surviving cancer. I’m just so proud that she never just gave up and that she just kept going on with her life. That meant so much to me and I will never give up.

    Seeing my two grandparents so strong makes me want to be like them more and more. They where to grate people and I will forever miss them. But its not really a sad thing because I like to look at the good life they had with us and how special it was. But I still know they are still watching over me and my family. They where grate roll models and they still are! That’s two of the many people I look up to in my life. I hope all of you have people like that.
