Swish was a wonderful friend to our family. I remember, as a child, playing in his front yard and climbing on the handrail and how much fun we would have sledding down the big hill. What a wonderful thing that even my kids got to know Swish and interact with him. My children climbed on the rails and talked with him and he did not seem put out. he became a friend of our mom's when our dad passed away and looked out for her. He will be remembered as a good friend and loving neighbor. I am sorry for your loss.
