  11. I am terribly sorry to hear of Basil’s passing, I have known Basil since I can remember. Basil was a huge part of the South Kolan community, and everyone has wonderful memories of him. I was fortunate to work with him and walking into the Bingera store was the highlight of my day, rubbing chilly on the lip of his cup or putting bearing blue in his hard hat had the both of us laughing so hard our belly’s hurt [he always got me back] Both Dawn and I will miss him. Condolences to all the family.
