By BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. The Florence community lost a really nice man of good character last week when Forrest Matthews passed away on Aug. 21. Forrest was a realtor and real estate appraiser, a musician and music instructor, and a golfer. He was a family man and a good friend to many. His many friends say he was always fun to be around. Although born in Washington, DC., he was raised in Florence.
