The year 2009:

First I want to remember three loved ones we lost this year: two of Forrest's dear grandfathers, Papa Sug & Papa Honey. He shared a special relationship with both and the family gatherings will never be the same without them. We also lost my Aunt Rosa. We will never forget the memories made during their lifetimes.
