Descendants, Loretta is with our ancestors now. She is being embraced by Uncle Sam and Cousin Kelly. Her parents Charlotte (Swatsworth) and Blair Anderson and grandparents Rosa (Rowles) and Joe Swatsworth and Mary (Hickok) and George Anderson are surrounding her with love. We should all be content in knowing that she is no longer alone. My Aunt Loretta was witty, smart, and always compassionate. Her hands were adorned with red beautifully manicured fingernails. Her penmanship would be admired by calligraphers. This message is for all of us to honor our relatives. Please take the time to visit their final resting place at Hillcrest, Bloomington, Centre, and Oak Hill Cemeteries. If you can, plant red geraniums on their sites as that was their favorite and know that she and everyone else will always be watching over us. Your Nephew, W Douglas Anderson.
