My sympathies, Kathy. It's so hard to lose a sibling to death. May you find peace and comfort in knowing he is at peace now. Also, may fond memories fill the hole in your heart. BEtty Anne Strobel

Bob Basile was a wonderful guy, bother in law and friend! I knew him as Basile and he and his father were of great influence to me as a child. So many times he and Mar, my great and loving sister would take us to the beach with them when they did not have to but they did so unselfishly . Basile was Christian man and I'm certain he is in looking down on all of his family that I love so very much.
