  1. I was very sad to hear of Swifty's passing. She was the first person that greeted me when I got hired at City College. I worked with her for over a decade and she was always a joy. We shared many laughs. She always had a smile for me… and candy. We both had a deep love for animals so I would regale her with stories of my cat and she shared stories about her niece's bunny or the pugs she knew at Pug Rescue.

    We would also share stories about our families and support each other while our moms were going through difficult times. I still have my lion sticker she got me from her alma mater Penn State on one of her many visits home.

    After she retired, Swifty still came by to visit and made extra efforts to come by on Halloween. The kids from the Child Development Center would "trick or treat" around the offices and Swifty got a real kick out of seeing them in their costumes.

    My last interaction with her was just a chance meeting as we were both out in North Park for dinner. Another evening full of laughs. I'll miss her giggle.

    My deepest condolences to Coleen's family.
