The following was forwarded to me, i have to pass it on. He's led a wonderful life and inspired an unimaginable amount of people, in many ways shaping the future he dreamt of. One of the absolute kindest men I've ever met. I spent a lot of time with him while shooting a documentary on his life. I hate the idea of him not being here anymore. Anyway, here's the message... "I talked to Joe Moe, Forry's caregiver and best friend. He told me to spread the word about Forry. Forry is leaving us quickly. If you're going to write or call, do it now before it's too late. He's in good spirits and not in any pain or taking any meds. He did not have any heart attack or stroke. He is home resting comfortably, but his body is starting to shut down and he's sleeping alot now, hes very weak. Even if you do what I did, just write "I love you" on a piece of paper and mail it, please do something if he touched your life in some way................joey OBrien FORREST J ACKERMAN 4511 Russell Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90027 "
