Hi Sunny! Life is whizzing by for all of us. For those of us left here a little while longer, the time passes quickly most of the time, and stops still when we miss you here.

From time to time, check in on your loved ones. We don't understand that your death has not been hard for you, because you have found the next life. If we only believed what we understand, we would all miss most of everything. There is a promise to us, over and over, that we live on after this life, and we struggle to embrace this information. (Sorry!)

For now, it does us good to know that you are well. We'll all see you in the blink of an eye, anyway.

How sad to have had to miss Sunny's 25th Birthday! Also strange that Dad & Gma chose the same day to write in his Guest Book. It takes some time to come to grips with our loss & talking about him & his great life is all we have left. So damn un-necessary to have to "mourn" such a beautiful young man!!! There is no way to understand such a horrible tragedy, but the family & friends of our loved one know that Sunny would have given us all holy hell if he knew we were struggling so badly! So Sunny, my dear grandson....we will go on, but we'll never quit loving and missing you!! Hey hon, give Grandpa my love and a kiss for me. OK? OK!!

another day of memories, a future unknown. it is the stories and shared good times of life with my boy that slowly melt away the immeasurable, seemingly unlivable loss of our son.

thank you for the very kind words.

please take care.

Dear jackie, I have wanted to write for soo long..when dad told me of your terrible loss of Sunny, I had only met him at Uncle Jacks bedside and was so impressed and delited with such a funny, polite and darling kid, we talked about Sunny for months after that, mom and dad just adored him and we had all just met him briefly. I know that this email comes very late..for that I am sorry, it seemed as though with the news of Sunny, all hell broke loss, we lost mom stortly after that, which is still such a huge loss in my heart and then Garry and then Lindas illness came many things in such a small time frame.. I want you to know how much I loved you as a cousin and miss you all. I can not imagine lossing a child, my heart and prayers go out to you and the family even now to cope with and learn to live life again, it is what Sunny would want, you were an awesome father to have raised such a wonderful boy.
All my love Shawn

When Sunny's Grandpa died, I bought some Christmas tree ornaments in his memory for the family. He was the original Jack Edward Forshee. Now we have the first and last that this little poem is very apt for.
"I love you all dearly, now don't shed a tear, I'm spending my Christmas with Jesus this year." The beauty of the poem will never replace or soften the hurt and lonliness we all feel. Sunny and Grandpa, you are SO loved and missed.

It's been two months today since we have lost one of the greatest loves of our lives. His memory will live for ever in the hearts of those who knew and loved "Sunny" Forshee. A fine son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend who will be missed forever in our hearts....

When Jack's father was in the ICU, my third son, John, was also there and I was attending alone. Jack and I became friends and he was more than comforting to me, which I will never forget. We have remained in touch and I have enjoyed reuniting with him and the children when they've stopped over in Seattle en route to Spokane - and Jack and I have emailed every once in a while, sharing some interests and viewpoints. My second son, Andy, committed suicide in January in Mississippi - he was a bitter survivor of AIDS, had been on the HIV cocktail for many years - he resented the world he created for himself. When Jack wrote me about Sunny's untimely and unbelievable accident a month after my son's death, it was another parallel between us, both of us survivors of near-death, me cancer and he the stem cell need, then divorces, then life itself, suddenly scary and empty except for our kids. Now a fourth of me is gone and a third of Jack is gone and there are no words to give him solace and peace because Sunny WAS Jack. Sunny was a fine young man, straight, honorable, funny, strong, smart, hardworking - everything anyone could want in a son. Jack did it right and lost himself in loving Sunny as I did loving Andy. Sunny loved life and if he had lived 86 years, he could not have lived a more noteworthy life. Jack will miss him forever but the world is a better place for having had Sunny in it. He made the mountains and the snow and the meaning of life itself stand out as if in three dimensions, like an unexpected pop-up adventure book illustrated in Technicolor. In just 23 years, he made a thousand-year footprint on many, many hearts. He will be missed even by people like myself, on the outer fringe here. God bless you Jack and give you strength to care for yourself and those lovely girls. It will never go away but it will get better.

Dear Jack, Shan, Amber and Bella

I think of you all every day and hope you're finding glimpses of Sunny in all the things you do.

He sure squeezed a lot of life into 23 years and had more adventures than most people can get into a long lifetime. Most people wait until they're much older to start living each day as if it's your last.....Sunny got an early start on that one! I hope you find solace knowing that he touched so many lives in so little time.

I will always remember him as the smiley preschooler who was so polite, the protective big brother, the little boy in the big suit and mostly, Jack's little man.

Shan and Jack-you raised a beautiful young man. I will think of you often and see you again in July.

I was walking home when I had the random thought of how Jack still used the kid's childhood nicknames. I thought, "Sunny funny." I wondered if Sunny remembers that one. The next day I got the tragic news.
Sunny, say hi to Gpa for me.

To my little brother and his loving family, Shan and the many relatives and friends,

As our hearts break from the sudden loss of Sunny we have to remember "If GOD brings you to it, He will bring you through it". I will cherish the many wonderful memories of Sunny, the exciting stories, pictures of his life adventures and my new love of the song "Sunny". He was definitely the sunshine in so many lives. Jack I am here for you always. With Love, Rhonda.

Dearest Sunny, It's not goodbye, it's see you later. Give daddy a big kiss and hug from me.
