Great story June! I remember the days Swede stopped by the Forest
Service warehouse and swapped stories with Sandy Mackey, our
warehouse supervisor. If we'd only thought to have a tape recorder
handy! Lee Frank and I attended Swede's funeral at the Church
of God. I think it was the only time I ever saw Lee shed a tear.
There were many stories told and evidence given that Swede walked
his talk. If there is any logging in heaven I know Swede, Sandy,
and Lee are doing their part. God Bless.
