Not sure what to say?

I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Forrestel as my English teacher in 1982/1983. She was one of my favorite teachers and I learned so much from her. I had much respect for her. I was again blessed when both of my daughters had her daughter Mrs. Borden for Math in Akron. What a wonderful family. I am very sorry for your loss.

Ref and the whole family,
Ginny was a fabulous person! Always happy and ready with a story about one of you kids. She was so proud of all of you. I'm sure she has already made many friends in heaven. I hope you share many funny stories about her when you get together. Her memories will last forever. My prayers are with all of you.

Dick, Steve and your families,

Please accept our prayers and heartfelt sympathies. We remember with fondness Ginny's gracious hospitality, wit, and keen intellect. Though surrounded by a large and accomplished family, her role as the strong and loving matriarch was readily evident. Although she will be missed by many, her pragmatic wisdom and influence will long endure.

Dear Dick and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Ginny was the Grace Kelly of Akron ! She was such a class act and a beautiful lady. It was a pleasure knowing her for 41 yrs. she was such a proud mother and
Grandmother. I missed her when she was not in church, and looked up to her for all those yrs. It will be hard to fill her shoes. God speed her journey home. And may our Lord help to ease the pain you all feel now , you know she will be watching over you all from...

Dear Forrestel Family,
My thoughts are with all of you at this sad time. Please know that your mom (wife, grandma, great-grandma) was loved and respected by many. Here's hoping you delight in your many shared memories of her.

To the Forrestel Family:

I was so sad to learn of the passing of Mrs. Forrestel, a lovely, intelligent and spirited woman whom I admired very much. I enjoyed it when she would substitute teach in Akron - she was a mixture of strength and grace - and, her passion for teaching was contagious. May the many, many happy memories your big family has made bring you peace in the days ahead. God bless you all.

Heartfelt sympathy to the Forrestel family from a former English student. Although my behavior was rather undesirable in her classroom, I inwardly respected Mrs. Forrestel and looked to her for guidance. I have quite often thought of her with warm regard throughout the passing decades. Regretfully, I never seized the opportunity to apologize to Mrs. Forrestel for my poor behavior in her classroom.
