I heard today of Colonel Ben Swett's passing. Thoughts and prayers to Wyn, Scott, Bruce, Carol and all affected by this great loss. I knew Colonel Swett through Bethany Christian Church where my parents were a member and I in my youth. He was a great man and highly respected by me as a career Air Force Officer. He's flying with the angels now

Uncle Ben, I'm going to miss you. I'm so glad I got to see you in 2009, one last time. I know I'll see you again one day and I'm sure you and my dad are flying together now! I love you!
