My deepest sympathy to the family. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Baskin just over 11 years ago. He was a patient of mine at Sound Hearing Solutions in McKinney. I just adorned him! He was always so sweet and had so many great stories to share. I even remember one time he brought me a potted plant to the office. I left the practice 11 years ago to stay at home with my babies...but over the years, Mr, Baskin is the one patient that I have always missed and often thought about. I am so glad I got to know him for short period that I worked there. Prayers and blessings to you. Lisa Knopp, June 1, 2014 My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. May God bless and comfort you. Clinton was a very sweet and kind man. I worked for him at the McKinney Job Corp for 7 years and could not ask for a better boss. He will be missed.
