How to get rid of notifications on Samsung Galaxy Centura android phone?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Centura android phone. I download SMS forwarding on it. Everything works fine but I can't get the SMS forwarding icon or notifications to go away on my home screen status bar. It only goes away if I "disable" it but then I won't get any text messages sent to my email. I need help on how to remove the icon and notification. Clear doesn't work. Thanks in advance!
