Bito: Clarence M. Bassett aka Mario

We all gathered together on Sat. Sept 20th (before the engagement party) afternoon to spread my Grandpa, Clarence Merritt Bassett’s ashes next to my Grandma, Katherine Meyer Bassett…

Above is the tree carved with their initials marking the spot. It was very special even though it has almost been two years since he passed for each of us to go around and share a memory or something we will never forget about Grandpa and the amazing Man of God he was.



This is the crew…there are still quite a few missing that live out of the country and in other parts of the USA.


Then our ‘silly’ picture:


1st Row:
From Left: Tia Mary Bassett, Amy Wells (Tio John Bassett’s daughter), Bobby Osborn, John Carson Wells (7), Rylie Wells (just turned 11), Laura Cisneros*, Hannah Doery*, Myself, Cordie, and James Benge. (Tia Mary’s son)

3rd Row:
From Left: Don Osborn, Michael Osborn, Alaina & her mother Candace, Donald Osborn, Jose (Laura’s Fiance) and Antonio Cisneros.

As an ending note to them both (though they will never be forgotten) we sang the chorus of a song my Grandpa would sing to Grandma Katherine.

“K-K-K-Katy, beautiful Katy,
You’re the only g-g-g-girl that I adore;
When the m-m-m-moon shines,
Over the cowshed,
I’ll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.
K-K-K-Katy, beautiful Katy,
You’re the only g-g-g-girl that I adore;
When the m-m-m-moon shines,
Over the cowshed,
I’ll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.”

Flintrock Falls


First for us both at a Texan Golf Course… boy was it beautiful… with fresh water springs flowing through most of the holes… bright green fairways due to the tremendous amount of rain the area had seen the previous week…







We played at Flintrock Falls, an awesome course cut through the Austin Hill Country.. which is in the group of golf clubs owned by the same company as Queens Harbour Yacht and Country Club… so we got to play as members. We are both looking forward to playing at many more courses around the USA in the group





Cordie really enjoyed seeing all the cactus throughout the course…

Mila June

Was born on December 31st, 2013 and is the sweetest little thing… Her mother is my cousin, Erica Cisneros – dad is Junior.  I am so glad I finally got to meet her precious Mila June..

She is an amazing mom… going to school full-time and works during the week as well… I am so proud of her and all that she is and is becoming. I can’t wait to watch her and her daughter continue to grow together.

These pictures were an impromptu decision while we waited on family before Grandpa Bassett’s ceremony… Erica was attacked by massive fire ants before we even started… the things you usually don’t see from ‘photo’ shoots…
