My condolences to the family there in Greene County. I recall 'Rooster' very well and the hard work that he and other in the Boswell family put
into the Dairy Farm and Cattle businesses. He was always friendly to me, even though I was much younger. May God Bless His Soul & May HE REST in PEACE.

Dear family,

I can hear him saying as he called Gene on the phone "Hello Cuz". He was a great Cuz and a good friend. We had a fire at our hay barn years ago and it burned all the hay outside the barn, thankfully it didn't burn the barn and the hay stored inside. He came the next few days and worked all day, lifting the burned hay with the forklift and shaking it down to ensure all the fire was put out. He continued to do that until he was sure no hotspots were left. Not only a good cousin, but all one could ask for in a friend.

You will be missed here, but we'll see you later.

Gail & Gene
