Dearest Brinton Family
By now most of you are aware of the passing of our dear friend and most ardent patron Forrest E. Mars, Jr.
Indeed Forrest was a true citizen of the world and could have lived in any corner of it, but Big Horn, WY was his home, and he was a proud and active member of our community as witnessed by his many gifts to the numerous public efforts around Sheridan County, not the least of which was made to this institution.
We say farewell to our beloved friend and neighbor with sad hearts but with the enduring memory of a kind and generous man who enjoyed helping worthy causes, not for the glory, nor for the honor, but for the enduring benefit they bring the community.
Kenneth L. Schuster, Director and Chief Curator
