    Swafford Family, I remember many afternoons at uncle Noel and aunt Suzzy’s house with my aunt Brenda. We were there to see mammaw. Those days spent watching tv with her as she spit in her can or playing out in the side yard on the swing or trying to figure out how to ride the riding toys dow the edge of the driveway with Mickey are memories I still cherish at 41. Sorry for the loss of Noel i will cherish memories made forever. RIP Uncle Noel give Aunt Suzzy kisses from us all.

    My prayers are with you all, I have nothing but sweet and funny memories of Mr. Swafford, I hope him and my Pa (Mr. Organ) are up in heaven talking about fishing and how to grow a bigger tomato. Love to you all.
