To the Basos Family
I was saddened to hear of the passing of our one time next door neighbor.
We lived next door to the family for years on Montour St in Binghamton. It has been years since I last saw Mr. Basos, but I will always remember him and his family as our next door neighbors.

May the family find peace in your memories at this very difficult time.
