Dear Schroeder family, I'm truely sorry for your loss. I found about Forrest's tragical news only recently, but it still touched me deeply. Even though it's probably roughly over 20 years since I've last seen Forrest, I still have a lot of memories of him. First of all, he was always the smart one. I can remember he read a lot and he was often the one explaining me things. We were little boys back then, so the topics were often about Power Rangers and videogames. But I really miss those talks, Forrest was a true friend. When we left Appleton, Forrest was the friend I missed the most. Apologies for the very late condolences. On behalf of the whole Raukola family, we wish strength for all of you. BR: Pekka Raukola

Dear DJ, Wen, and Andrew, I'm deeply sorry for your loss of Forrest. When mom called me to tell me what had happened it was like the wind had been knocked out of my lungs. I remember the first time I met Forrest. It was at our Troop 142 meetings at Houdini Elementary. He was the first of the older scouts in the Pedro patrol to be my friend and he was always willing to teach me something new. From the long drives in DJ's truck to the nights we stayed up late on camping trips he was always willing to talk about whatever. I remember the time when we went to Boundary Waters. He taught me so much about roughing it in the wild and was the first to cheer me up when I felt home-sick. He always made sure that everyone around him was taken care of and involved, no matter what the situation. He had a true heart of gold and he is going to missed. I'll always keep Forrest in my heart as I do you DJ, Wen, and Andrew. May God bless you and protect you.

Wen I was shocked and saddened when I read about the death of your son. His obiturary gave me a glimpse into his spirit and personality. What a gift he was to you and many others in his brief time. It only heightens the pain of going forward without him. While you and I have not talked about spirituality I am hoping that your beliefs and faith provide a sense that your son will remain present to you and others....just not in the same way he was in the past. It's got to be a difficult time for you and if there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to ask. Perhaps another lunch meeting where we can share our insights into the world of work at K-C. In in the meantime, I'll keep you and Forrest in my thoughts and prayers. Peace, Jim Smits

Wen, D.J. & Felix It has been some time since I last saw you Wen, but I easliy recall your many fond stories about Forest. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time of great loss. In reading over the information in the newspaper about Forest, he truly was a remarkable boy. Both of my sons are Eagle Scouts and I know what it takes to earn that scouting award. I am sure he touched many hearts during his life and will be remembered as a great kid, friend and son. If there is anything I can do now or down the road, don't hesitate to ask me. May God be with you all. Your K-C commuting friend from Green Bay Jim

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It seems like just yesterday all of us were in boyscouts building winter forts and sking up at bruel. I saw this in paper and I was extremly shocked after seeing him at GW so many times in the last year. I'll keep you in my prayers in the upcoming weeks.
