Hi Mrs. Dawn and kids!

I just want to say that I miss Pastor and Preston SO much! It is almost a year since I read and got the message that Pastor and Preston had gone to see our great and mighty God. I just start thinking that they are in a better place. Pastor and Preston are probably having a blast in God's Kingdom.
Just know that I am praying for you and that they are looking down at us all.

In Christ,

Dawn and Family, We sure miss you at Bell Shoals. Thanks for the video message for Simeon. It meant so much to our family. It was so special. Thanks for taking the time to help us with your words of strength and hope. We pray your doing better and better. God Bless You All.

I'm deeply saddened to learn about the deaths of my former classmate, Forrest (Gene) Pollock, and his son Preston. I met Forrest at Thomas Jefferson Middle school in Oklahoma City when we were both in the 6th grade, and we both graduated from US Grant High School in 1982.

The thing I remember most about Forrest is the charisma he had, and how he stood out in the crowd, but didn't follow the crowd. He always had a smile on his face, and treated everyone with respect no matter what their faith was.

My deepest sympathies go to his wife Dawn, and her surviving children. I can't imagine the depth of their loss and what they must be going through.

Forrest made the world a better place for so many, and has left an incredible legacy. It's unbelievable that he's no longer with us, but what he has left behind has touched so many lives.

This is the 2nd time i am writing in here. I have felt compelled to say a little something today. We all know that Pastor Pollock and Preston are in a much better place. We all can definatly rejoice in that! God is awesome and He only takes the very best!

To the Pollock Family

We thank God for allowing Dr. Pollock to touch our lives through his exceptional pastoral leadership while we were students at Louisiana State University and members of Istrouma Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We miss him dearly as we hold tender memories of him, not only as an exceptional man of God who touched our lives in ways we cannot begin to describe but also as the pastor who wedded us in December 2001. We cannot imagine what you are going through having both Preston and pastor Pollock leave you so soon but we continue to pray that the God who pastor Pollock dearly loved and so wonderfully represented will glorify Himself in your lives in ways that no human mind can fathom. May God, who alone understands the extent of your loss and your grief, comfort you and bless you in ways that He alone can during this very difficult time and may He be your ever present guide for all the days to come. We love you and we continue to pray for you.

Pastor Pollock was a great man of God. He touched and changed my life by his teachings and actions when i was a student at LSU in Baton Rouge LA.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

To the Pollock family, I tried to search for your email, but no luck. Just wanted to say Happy Father's Day. I know it's the first father's day without your beloved dad. Hope you guys would find peace in this holiday and let the Lord be with you.

To the Pollock family,

I was overseas when I first heard the news of the plane having not arrived at destination. My heart sank immediately and continues to sink as I remain deeply sorrowed for you and all the multitudes that Forrest touched and the multitudes he can not touch on this Earth except through this tragedy. He may well be the most genuine, most sincere, most righteous pastor I have known or met--ever. How blessed we all were to have him among us, showing, teaching, demonstrating what its like to be as Godly as any human being, less Jesus, could possibly be. My family and I will so very much miss him and as much as that may be, pales in comparison to the whole he left in your family. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be of your family in this time of great sorrow.

Dear Pollock Family,

Our hearts have been broken, but we can't imagine what you must be going through. We came to Bell Shoals in November, 2002. We loved the church immediately. Of course, Pastor Pollock was a big part of that because he always preached God's Word with power, clarity, conviction, and, of course, humor. We didn't meet Preston, but we know he was a special young man. It was always a joy to see the family all sitting right there on the front row every Sunday. You will continuously be in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Loved ones,
Our hearts are so heavy with sadness. We grieve for our loss for such a gifted and annointed pastor. Every day I hear his words ringing in my ears. Knowing that what he preached is what Jesus wanted me to hear and to impress upon me to be a passionate follower of Christ. Dearest Pastor Pollock made such a wonderful impact on our lives. We are forever grateful, and we feel so blessed to have received such wonderful guidance and teaching from our beloved pastor Forrest. We will always remember all that he gave us, and God willing we will be able to show and tell what we have learned from this wonderful servant of God. I feel so priveledged to have been a part of his flock, and will be one who will honor him and his memory.

Remembering his words on his first sermon in our new sanctuary, " as long as I have breath, I will preach the word of God" what an inspiration for all Christians. Can we ever fill the gap he left us? I hope so...
