Heaven as the Old Homestead: The Swift Family Homestead was established in Angelica, New York, in 1908. Mr. Swift would have been born there less than a decade later, and it seems to have provided him with a lifetime of fond memories: of warmth, love, security, adventure, and maybe even romance. He and his wife are now with the angels, but their remains are not in Angelica; they are in Wellington. If memories are strong enough to follow us across a continent, can they also follow us into heaven? Highland Cemetery.
