I just learned that former Alderman Bill Forbes passed away. He was my ward Alderman. We disagreed politically on many issues but I respected the man. He was sharp and funny and no matter how angry I got at him he always took the time to walk to my house or drive by with his wife and say hello and try to talk some sense into me. He cared and was concerned that somehow I would be hurt. And he was right. I probably should have listened to him a little more.
Rest in peace my friend.
So sorry for the loss in Melrose thank you for the message.
