So sorry for your loss. Nick and I were in the same class and graduated together from BHS. I never saw him again after graduation. I always remember he was a good guy in school.

Hi…Mr. Basinger was buried next to my Daddy, Roy John Cobb. I planted a rose for Mr. Basinger at his tombstone on Friday, May 17th. I figured they are neighbors and I’m sure they met in Heaven. My condolences to the Basinger family.
