he is and always will be the love of my life.. march 20, 2010... our wedding date, i know that i talk to you often, but i miss you more than you could ever imagine.. i want you back just to hold me one more time but i know that if i asked god for just one more time, i would find myself asking for more. i still wear my wedding ring.. and i cant take it off.. i can barely get through one day without you.. and i know that life goes on.. but just like that song. love lives on.. and i love you and that wont ever change. i miss you my love, and i sit here in tears wondering what i could have done different.. but its no use.. ur still gone.. and i live in misery without you. i love you don.. would you know my name if i saw you in heaven, would it be the same, if i saw you in heaven? would you hold my hand if i saw you in heaven? god i hope so. i love you sweetheart.

This is my son and he was a very special person. A good husband, dad, and a great son. He got mixed up and took a wrong turn. The comment below in my eyes can't be true when there were only two people in the house at the time of the shooting and the death certificate states death due to the actions of another. How could you love someone and something like this happen???? I'll never understand this. By the way the ring a few weeks ago hasn't been paid for - I don't think he would hold her hand in heaven probably would run. She should make sure she is right with the Lord before you start holding hands!!! Don't think heaven is like that anyway. I could tell her what she could have done different if she had ask. You aren't with people in heaven as she is referring to below - things in heaven aren't like things on earth this is for sure. My getting through all of this is that I know Don was saved and he is with the Lord and would not want to come back here. His children are having a hard time. They need a lot of prayers. The year mark is almost here and it seems like only yesterday. I love you my Don I'll be with you sometimes soon. Mom

Wish Heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again.. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days befor that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is...a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in His arms...I have you in my heart. I love and miss you so much Don it's hard to make it through each day. Your children miss you something terrible, but they know you are in Heaven and they will see you. They are so precious, it is so sad for them to grow up without a Dad. Oh, how they loved you as you did them. Your last words were help me to live for my children. Not for anyone else just the children. This shows in dying your mind and heart was with them. Rest in Peace my sweet son. Mom

I just learned about this today, and I am horrified! I was a personal friend of Don Bassett, but have not been in touch with him for awhile. What happened? I have never known Don Bassett to have any kind of drinking problem whatsoever, and he was certainly not a violent person. Everytime I try to get information about this the articals go on about detail of the neighborhood. There is a man dead here! What happened! Someone please explain.

Deputy Dave if you contact me through email I will try to explain what the police report and all said. You said you are a Deputy, what county are you with?? Don was not a drinker nor a violent person just made a bad decision of the company he kept. He was a great man and I am very proud of the accomplishments he made in his short lifetime. I will never get over this horrible death, I love and miss him so much that my heart feels like it is going to break. I know the Lord makes no mistakes. I hurt for his children they loved him so very much and he did them. That was his last words please help me to live for my children. This tells you who he really loved and were on his mind at the time of his death. No other name was mentioned except them. He was a wonderful Dad and no one could love their children anymore than he did. I just ask for prayer for the children. They are having a hard time still now. Love and miss you my precious son. Mom

I love you Don... I miss you and think of you everyday... I cannot stop looking at our home made videos and all the pictures we took.. I fall asleep to them each night, so i can hear your voice.. we sure did know how to have fun.. that is what you always said.. I will always cherish the time I spent with you.. you taught me so much...and no one will ever understand the love that we had, but I have accepted that... we both know how we felt....

I miss you more everyday and I know why you stayed in the situation you were in - it wasn't love it was not being alone. You made that statement. Your Dad and I have regreted and wished so many times that we had told you to get out of the mess you were in with the person you were with. We will have to answer for this. Looking at videos and pictures and hearing your voice will not bring you back. We know what happened to you and I am so sorry you had to go with a gunshot. Your children miss you so very much. Matthew says You know I am saved Nana and I will see my Dad when I get to heaven. Out of the mouth of babes. I will see you and your dad, Ryan, Sherry, and all the children. Just be there to welcome us. I don't think you taught the person you were with very much I think they taught you things not such good things!! I'm very sorry for this. You would still be here if they had never been in your life. The Lord knows all about it. We all miss you so much. Ryan got married, you probably know this!! The children say you are an angel that watches over them. It is sad, but they are so precious just hate they had to face all of this at such a young age. I should have been the one to go not you. Love and miss you so very much. Mom

I know that writing this is for my benefit. You are with the Lord and I will see you again. We miss you as much today as we did two years ago (tomorrow will be 2 yrs.) Your life was taken from you for no reason, this should not have happened. I'm so sorry that you got mixed up with the wrong person. But I feel as though I let you down by not letting this go to court, but I know you would have said don't hurt my children. This would have hurt them so much. All the talk, newspapers etc. I know the Lord will do a much better job of punishing the person than the law would ever do this includes me. Could have filed wrongful death suit, almost did but again I thought of the children. I love them to much. I love you and Dad and I, the whole family misses you so very much. The person that did this to you - that family may never know this kind of pain. You just don't know what tomorrow holds! Love and kisses
