    I am so sorry Swaney family. He was a wonderful person. I miss him so much already but I can still hear him calling me kid. I do believe the ones that really make a difference in our lives, never ever really leave us completely. I will never forget my birthday when I was going to walk to Sheridan’s by myself, but he asked if he could go with me.

    Frank and family – so very sorry to hear about Steve. He was part of our lives. He will be missed – his gretting hug at the lake, his smile, his upbeat personality – HIM! I know there are many hearts hurting. Our sympathies to you, Audrey and family at this difficult time.
