Ann,I'm sorry to read about your mom. You may not remember me, but we went to school together. And I lived one street over from you. I remember being at your house playing. May God comfort you and your family.

I will miss my running buddy. Loved getting our nails done and then lunch together. Eating all the stuff we weren’t supposed too. Loved just riding around looking at houses and people. I will miss you more than I can say. I’ll see you again one day. Love you. Rita

I loved looking through the Swain family pictures and reliving memories. I will miss seeing Charlita and the sweet smile she always had on her face.
Ann, I never realized how much you look like your mom.
