My condolences to all the Bascone sons and their families on the loss of your father. He was a wonderful man, and loved your mother, and his children and grandchildren so much. He will be missed. He went "home" to be with your mother, and the dear Lord. Know that the memories of your parents will provide some comfort. These two angels will be watching over you for many years to come.Blessings to all of you.Sincerely,Lora Diaz

Our sincere sympathy to all of you and your families. It just seems impossible to lose them both so close together but they were So Close together! We really loved both your folks and are very saddened by your loss. It is our loss too but in a different way as two of our oldest and dearest friends have gone home to Heaven. God Bless you all.
