Forsyth County News

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Department, especially the deputies and firefighters involved in handling my family’s recent loss.

I was notified by deputies, Pittman and Francis of my wife’s death and was also visited by Deputy Nelson later that evening. In each case, the deputies demonstrated sensitivity and professionalism.

They stayed with me until they were certain I had family support. All deputies indicated that I could call if I needed any further assistance.

The tragedy of that day will live in my mind forever, as will the sincerity and professionalism of these firefighters and deputies. I’m grateful for their honorable service.

I would also like to thank the whole department for the police escort provided at the funeral procession as we carried Andrea to her final resting place in Canton National Cemetery.

Please pass on my appreciation and gratitude.


Richard Phebus and family
