Dear Swift Family,

I would like to extend my condolences to all of you. I worked at A.G. Edwards/Wachovia Securities/Wells-Fargo for 10 years closely with Michael Schaffer and I knew a few of you and I knew your father. I hope you are all doing well. Be strong for your mother and always cherish the memories you shared with your father.

God Bless you all,

My condolences to the Swift family, and especially to my cousin Peggy that successfully raised a large family. and had such an amazing husband, a good marriage, and quite a life experience. Sympathies to all, Ham's life was certainly full and accomplished, and now it's prayers and peace to follow on.

My sincere condolences to the entire Swift family. I was a customer of the John Swift Company and have only the best memories of a very honest and good man. His son John was my immediate interface with the business.However his Dad was always there as well. Teletype Corporation was a better place because of Hampden Swift.

My sincere condolences to the entire Swift family. My memories of Mr. Swift always include his great smile and his deep love & pride in his family.

I knew Ham to be a devoted husband to my precious friend, Peggy and to be a wonderful Father to his thirteen children. What a marvelous family! Ed and I send our condolences at this sad time. Carol and Ed Swift
