    We were neighbors on Dorris Drive. Our children were young and played outside all over the neighborhood. We all watched after each other’s kids. She was so sweet and giving. Every time I saw her she would say “Hey there Jone Briggs”. Always both names. She has the most wonderful sense of humor. I will miss seeing her greatly on Wednesday night at church. I love you Doris Swift.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Swift, but imagine that she was a wonderful, vibrant, spiritual, loving lady. My only personal connection would be to her Grandson, Matt. The stories he would tell me about her made me laugh and make me think… all at the same time. Matt’s close relationship to her has certainly shaped his character, and helped him become a clever, honest, personable and truly caring young man. Those traits are becoming fewer and farther in-between… Thank you, Mrs. Swift, for passing along your best to him in a way only a Grandmother can.

    Sad that we will not be able to attend the celebration, but God has a new cheerleader. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.
