Mr. Forbes was stricken with dengue about September 1, and a week later he had a relapse and lived two weeks, Dengue fever and complications set in. He leaves to mourn him a loving wife, Mrs. Adelaide E. Forbes, and four children, Mrs. Hattie C.

A precious one from us has gone; a voice we loved is stilled; a place is vacant in our home which never can be filled. God in his wisdom had recalled the boon that love has given, also the body slumbers; here the soul is safe in heaven.
