I would like to thank Kevin Nusser for the nice tribute to Anna Mary Swafford he wrote in the 5-7-09 Chieftain.

It touched me, made me cry and I have been grinning ever since reading it!

Bill McKinley was my dad , and Anna Mary was his sister and a very special lady.

Thank you, Mr. Nusser, for sharing your wonderful memories with the rest of us. I sent a copy to her daughter in Olympia.
