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.
