    Bernice, this is Ann Hogue Blankenship, so sorry for your loss. Sorry we lost touch. I hope you know how much I enjoyed James’ music for a lot of years when he played at both Bellwood and the Goochland Fiargrou

    Rest in peace old friend. I will always remember the years we worked together at AMF. You, Kenny and Walter were always so much fun to be around.

    Sending love and condolences. I will always remember the Boswells reuniting to play at my parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary in 1996 in South Hill! James was always so full of joy! What a wonderful man!! RIP.
