To the family, we remember "Robbie" (as we knew him.) It was the Aist family that helped my mom with our two mentally handicapp brothers, Wayne and Ricky Boswell. We live in Baden and I remember the many trips up there to carpool. We only have brother Wayne left, as we lost Ricky a few years back. Wayne will be 60 this year and still employed with Melwood, at the Nanjemoy Farm. We all still live in Baden.
Our deepest sympathy, but seeing his picture brought back fond memories. Sincerely, Doris J. Hall and the Boswell Family.
