  2. Bubber was like a second father to us. He was such a kind soul and always met us with his endearing smile. We always knew him to stand up for his beliefs and not back down to injustice. Bubber will remain in all our hearts as we pass through this life.

  4. Madelyn, Kevin, and Family,

  5. Rembert Earl Bassett was and will always be my loving grandfather. If you sat down with him for at least five minutes you would think he was the greatest guy you have ever in met in your life. He had a great since of humor, was loving, and was a nice gentlemen to everybody he had met. I was sad that he went but God had the final answer, it was time for my Bubba to go home. The hardest thing was to watch him suffer. He asked me if I would be mad that he went, but I said ,”No Bubba, you do what is right for yourself, I’m tired of sieng you suffer in pain”.I will always pray, smile up at him, cry, love, and cherish my great and loving grandfather, the most sweet human being ever on the face of the Earth, Bubba, I love you.

  6. I’m in tech school right now as a crew chief for the air force. One of the bigsegt parts of this artiadcle that stuck out to me was stayading involved as you go through the enlistadment process and it’s comadpletely true. While i was getadting ready to ship off to basic trainading I would go above and beyond the norm to help out my recruiter, I showed up for PT sesadsions before I ever went to MEPS and made it a point to go every week. Soon i started leadading the PT sesadsions and evenadtuadally was made DEP comadmanadder by my recruiter.I feel that it started the trend that’s been foladlowading me ever since. When i finally got to basic trainading in Decemadber of this last year my MTI made me an eleadment leader and now I’m an airadman leader here at tech school. The point is that even if your still not sure about going into the miladiadtary but have talked to a recruiter you should try to get invadoled with some of the extra activadiadties your recruiter does because you can’t know if it’s right for you until you start to meet the peoadple in it. This could even be your opporadtuadnity to become a great leader or at least shape you life into the best that it can be. I’m only 9 weeks out of basic trainading so everyadthing that hapadpened there is still fresh in my head and I’m happy to help anyadone that has quesadtions about it no matadter what branch of seradvice i can tell you honadestly what your getadting into. Email me at with any quesadtions. The miladiadtary has done great things for me and i want to share the expeadriadence with anyadone that wants toa0know

  7. I am about 5 years late knowing this. Something told me today to look this up. Earl was a fine friend, neighbor and all around good person. Madelyn and Kevin, I am sorry for your loss and hope that over these last 5 years that you have remembered all of the good things that y’all did together.
