A Great Wife, Mother, Daughter and Sister...

Has passed away this night! We are deeply sad to say that tonight around 11:45 Rochelle Christine Bassett took her last breath. We like to think that she was waiting to see Kamden with her new Birthday present that came today and that she wanted her last kisses and hugs from the kids.
This is Kendall sister #4, and I am not as good at this as Bailey sister #5 who was getting after me today just an hour before to update the blog that I promised would get done while she was gone back a home with her own family. I hope that you all pray for the kids and Ryan at this time.
Rochelle was a great example to us in so many ways and will be missed. We know that she is in a better place. We are grateful for all the many messages that were left for her and the family they have been very comforting and a great way to remember the life of an amazing daughter of God.
We will try to update soon with more information about the funeral arrangements.
Please know that we are very at peace and that Ryan has said that he is thankful for the prayers as they have helped him feel much peace at this time.

Ryan and family, our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to you all. We have been watching this blog all night. Heaven just gained a wonderful angel! Rochelle is an amazing person and as we all can tell well loved! I pray you all will be comforted and that you all feel at peace.

We are truly going to miss her awnryness. But thankfully we will always see Rochelle in those beautiful children. How my heart aches for them. I pray that Heavenly Father watches over them and provides them with understanding, peace, and love.

Ryan feel free to call or stop by out of the blue like Rochelle would do. Our door is always open and our ears and shoulders are available if you need someone to talk to.

God Bless you Ryan and children, God Bless the wonderful sisters and family that kept us all updated. Not an easy task when you were all helping around the Bassett home and dealing with your emotions. We thank you for the opportunities that allowed us to write and make comments on Rochelle's blog.

As I sit here typing, deleting, and typing again my heart is full. I'm so thankful to be able to say that I knew Rochelle. I'm thankful for the things she has taught me. I'm thankful that she acepted me for who I am. I'm thankful that she loved her family so dearly. I'm thankful that she chose to follow the Savior in all that she did. I'm thankful for her example of love, acceptance, & service. I'm thankful for her faith. I'm thankful for her strength. I'm thankful for the last four years she has been blessed to have with her family. I'm thankful she is no longer sick. I'm thankful I will see her again.

Continued prayers and hugs to all the family.

I believe Rochelle provided us a little glimpse of Heaven in the life she lived. Her spirit lives on! She has been a powerful influence for good. She remains with us in our thoughts and we will cherish the tender memories we have of her. May we strive to serve and love others as she did as we remember her always. Peace comes through our testimonies of our Heavenly Father, His perfect love for each of us and His eternal plan. Dear Bassett and Schultz families, we love you and will pray for your continued strength and comfort! Rochelle will not be forgotten, nor will your kindness and love in sharing the end of her journey with us. As our journey continues, please remember that you have neighbors and friends who are happy to help. Please call on us. We are here and will embrace every opportunity to serve.

Love to you, The Collins Family

My beautiful niece never gave up. She was valiant, a true Mother in Zion, a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. Your smile and laughter brought many to happiness. I will miss you, Rochelle, but through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we may be together as a family again. I am grateful that your family was there, sharing these moments together. Our love to you all, Uncle Ren

I am so sad for your loss.
Rochelle was very special.
A beautiful woman inside and out.
She has given us so many lessons
on how to live each day to the fullest, to be the best you can be,
to reach out to others in need.
She loved her family most of all.

shared help you in the days to come. My thoughts and prayers are

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've been following your blog for a few weeks. I almost felt like I knew Rochelle. I will be thinking of you all today... a strong, loving family.

I never got the chance to meet Rochelle. But from following her story, I know what a wonderful person she was and what a huge impact she has made on countless people. Even at the worst of times, she never lost faith. Throughout her battle, through good news and bad news, she never gave up hope. She never felt sorry for herself and always wanted to help others, even when she probably did not feel her best. She showed us how to have grace & dignity while dealing with life changing circumstances. If everyone had as much determination as Rochelle did to do good things and help other people despite their own challenges, what a great place this world would be. She is the definition of setting a good example, which we should all follow.

Thank you to the family for keeping us updated on her courageous journey, we have been rooting for her every step of the way, even though from the sidelines. I know this has had to be one of the most difficult things to deal with and I appreciate you sharing it with us. I will continue to pray for your family and hope that everyone is doing as well as can be expected.

With all my love & respect,

Rochelle put up a great fight. Now she can rest in peace. I can just imagine the reunion she had with family and friends that passed on before her. I'm thankful for her example and her friendship. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

My heart aches. What a strong mother, wife and sister. Only God understands why this was his plan and my prayer is that it will be revealed to provide peace and comfort to all who are grieving her loss. Perhaps it's God's way of bringing one person to salvation who will serve others in the capacity she did. May you forever be blessed with fond memories of her. Thoughts and prayers are with you....

Tears this morning for the world's loss of an amazing woman. Happy tears for knowing that God has a new soldier today, a perfect angel to look after her family everyday.

Over the last few weeks, as I've read about Rochelle's continued fight, I've been thinking of all the people who are doing things differently because of her example. Maybe being a little kinder, or attending to their kids more. Finding someone to serve or loving their spouse a little more fully. She touched so many people with her example of love, faith and hope and I know our community has changed because of her. She, and the entire Bassett and Shultz families have been remarkable through this journey. Our family will continue to pray for your comfort and peace.

I feel blessed to have observed Rochelle as a beautiful young woman who grew to have a beautiful family. Though after moving I lost track of her and her journey I'm grateful to have had an opportunity to have seen the impact Rochelle has had on others. She has taught me, simply through her example, to be more loving. All the wonderful things so many people have said about her are a tribute to her life and spirit. Thank you Bassett and Schultz families for allowing us to be a part of Rochelle's story and testimony. My prayers are with you. May your hearts be comforted in this time.

I did not know Rochelle personally. Just an old friend of Ryan's sister, who stumbled across this blog a few yrs back. I am so sorry and saddened for Ryan and his children. I know there is nothing I can say to make anything better, but please know that I am praying from across the country for Ryan and the kids to be able to find peace and happiness, and comfort. Share and treasure all those happy memories. Rochelle is now your personal guardian angel. Your families story has touched so many peoples lives that you don't even know. Hopefully you can take the kids out on a starry night and look up and a feel all the love and comfort from Rochelle looking down and all the people who are thinking of you guys! :)
Lots of love!

My heart goes out to Ryan and those beautiful children. Rochelle fought an unbelievable battle and her willingness to share her story - and the willingness of your family to continue to share it through the end shows what amazing strength you all have. Her pain has now ended and she can watch over her beautiful family from a better place.

We will miss Rochelle greatly! What a great friend she was! I'm grateful she is no longer in pain and at peace at this time! I too am grateful for the knowledge I have that I can see her again someday! That's what brings me comfort knowing this is not the end of our friendship! What a great example she was to everybody she came in contact with. She has brought so many closer to God by sharing her journey on this blog. Through her example, her strength, her positive attitude and her service she has inspired all of us to be better people! What a legacy she left to all who knew her and those who didn't but followed her on this blog. I hope I can be at least half the person she was. We pray that Ryan, Cole, Kamden, Carter, the Schultz' and the Bassett's find comfort and peace at this time. You are in our thoughts and prayers! I keep imagining God saying to Rochelle, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." I also imagine her jumping right into the work God has for her to do in the spirit world. She was always a go-getter!

We love you Rochelle and will miss you greatly! It is not goodbye, but until we meet again! Thanks to all who kept us posted on her condition. I know it probably wasn't easy but we really appreciate you letting us be a part of her journey.

Love always and forever,

We are so sorry for your loss and yet we are also relieved that Rochelle does not have to suffer anymore. She fought her battle with so much dignity and strength. Even though I only met Rochelle a few times she always had a smile on her face as we compared hair loss and hair growth and all the challenges of cancer :) I feel blessed to have known her and I know that she has left a wonderful legacy on earth.
We hope that her children will come to cherish the time that they had with her.

  I have been honored to be in Rochelle and Ryans home on many many occasions and have been blessed  for knowing them.  I have felt the sweet influence of the Holy Ghost in their home and know the influence that a great Mom has on her household.  I know that Rochelle had this great influence in her home.  She lived following after the greatest example of all, that is Jesus Christ.  

A quote comes to mind that reminds me of Rochelle.   "The gospel of Christ is a living, daily religion, and hourly religion.  It requires us to do right today, this hour, this week, this month and this year; and so on from year to year, to live our religion---which is the religion of Jesus Christ.".  Joseph F. Smith.  My thoughts and prayers are with the Bassett family that they wlll always remember the influence Rochelle had in their home.  Condolences go out to all of Rochelle's extended family as well, the Schultz and Bassett families and all others whom Rochelle has had influence on.  May the knowledge of the great plan of salvation and the Comforter give you the peace and comfort you need at this time.  I know Rochelle is free from pain and that she is happy and that she understood the gospel plan.  My life has been blessed because I knew Rochelle.  Thank you Rochelle for your example in the way you lived your life.  You will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family constantly at this time. What more can we say than what has been said. Rochelle was truly an example to us all. In life, she was all that a mother and wife should be. What a fantastic legacy she has left for her children. For some reason, all I have been able to think all morning is about how her last four years have been a pure gift she gave to her children. Her fight for life left them with the memory of a loving, caring, compassionate, service-oriented, mother they will always treasure. That memory is a gift they can always thank her for. You have so many around who love and care for you. God be with you. We love you!

I have been thinking about Rochelle all morning. I have wanted to leave a comment on the blog but I can't come up with words. Then this song came to my mind. This truely represents Rochelle's affect on my life and the lives of so many:

Each life that touches ours for good
Reflects thine own great mercy, Lord;
Thou sendest blessings from above
Thru words and deeds of those who love.


What greater gift dost thou bestow,
What greater goodness can we know
Than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways
Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.


When such a friend from us departs,
We hold forever in our hearts
A sweet and hallowed memory,
Bringing us nearer, Lord, to thee.


For worthy friends whose lives proclaim
Devotion to the Savior’s name,
Who bless our days with peace and love,
We praise thy goodness, Lord, above.

Rochelle's life was a gift from heaven. May we all remember it and let it shape our every future day. Thank you Ryan and family for allowing us to be part of this difficult experience. Please call anytime. We may have moved but you will always be our neighbors!

All Our Love, The Kogans

I knew Ryan from grade school on up. I did not stay in the area after graduation and missed out on getting to know everyone's families. After reading this blog, I feel so blessed to have read the words of such a strong fighter. Rochelle, she had to have been one tough cookie. She has a beautiful, loving family and a network of caring individuals who are here to offer support.
Cancer is an ugly disease that robs the world of great people. I wish I had known Rochelle. I can write this down and mean it, I will change the way I live my life from this moment on. I will not take another moment for granted, I will help others who cannot help themselves and I will cherish my son with all that I am. I will serve God as best as I can. Most of all, I will remember the words of Rochelle, some of the things that she wrote were amazing and uplifting. I truly wish I had had the opportunity to know her personally. Her story will never be forgotten. My love and prayers go out to her family and close friends at this difficult time. May God's everlasting love watch over you all.

There will be days you may cry, and days you will be mad, and there will be days you will spend laughing about all the great memories you have of your mom and family. It's important to know your mom will see all of those times and be there with you, watching over you, and sending her love from heaven. Every tear, every smile, she's there. Ryan, the same goes for you. My heart, and prayers are with your family.

When you look at your kids, Ryan, You will see Rochelle and the love that will alway be there. I am happy that she is no longer suffering and is in a place of peace and love. =) You will be strong and will grow even stronger as you recover from this. You have done it so far, to the amazement to me, and everyone else that Rochelle had shared this trial with. My Thoughts are with your Family.
<3

This poem gave my husband comfort when his father passed of cancer. I hope it brings a little of what it brought him to you guys:

Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush, of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there. I do not sleep.

Many thoughts hugs and prayers to the amazing family. Rochelle is always there watching over you.

My thoughts and prayers are with Rochelle's children, husband, and the rest of her family and friends. I never met Rochelle, but she seemed to be a very strong and amazing woman.
I am very touched and moved by her. This is a reminder how precious life is and to never take a single moment for granted.
God bless her family. Rochelle is now in a beautiful place where she is no longer in discomfort and pain. She will be missed by many, but now will be with and watching over her babies and loved ones.

After following Rochelles blog, I have been so touched. Tuesday I had a diagnostic mammogram and so thankful every turned out good. During my many test, she was on my mine, such a hard battle and yet such a strong lady.

She is now at peace, smiling down and looking over her family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all and thank you so much for continue to update us.

My heart was broken by the loss of Rochelle; she was a wonderful caring and giving person. I’m glad that she is no longer in pain and suffering from the horrible cancer. I’m sure that her memories and teachings will live on through her children. I met Rochelle when we were both attending Burbank schools and we became really good friends, spending time at each other houses and giggling on the phone. I was lost when we both moved to different schools for middle school, but then when I walked into Kennewick High it was a great sight to see her there. Even though our lives took different paths we still kept in touch generally by a simple comment on MySpace or Facebook. Rochelle and my dad both were diagnosed with cancer around the same time, I was hoping that she would beat this ugly disease and would be able to spend countless hours with her family. I was saddened to see that the cancer did not leave such a wonderful person. I’m happy that she was able to spend more time with her family and enjoyed every moment. She’s free and out of pain, she won the battle as this did not break her or spirits.

Ryan and family,
What a blessing it was to assist Rochelle as she fought her earthly battle and still let the light of our Savior shine from within her. May her spiritual example be a testimony to all who knew her here on earth and will have the privelege of her presence in the eternities. Paul S.
