I was sorry to hear of Jackie's passing.  As a member of the Irish Association of Manitoba, I have many memories of the Swann family and Irish danced with Shannon and Jaqueline.  Lots of old friends have made inquiries at the club over the years and remember him and the family with warm memories.  My condolences to the Swann family and friends.
