    Graphic by MamaBear After fighting ALS for several months, on Sunday morning Diver Dave was called home to Jesus' loving arms. According to his family, he is having a great reunion with his parents, his oldest sister, his parents-in-law and many others including many FReepers. As we recall what a Patriot Diver Dave was, it seems appropriate that he joined FreeRepublic July 4, 1998. Dave loved this country and our troops. Many times, he drove 2 hours each way to join the Fresno Freepers in support of our troops. Dave had a very strong faith that was an inspiration...

    I regret to inform our FReeper family that BlackELk passed away from a combination of numerous chronic conditions and a head trauma. Black Elk passed away Sunday, January 22, 2017. Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Working and praying on behalf of the unborn and those who challenged the abortion industry was his life's vocation, as an attorney he represented and won the acquittal of over 700 pro-life rescuers. He wanted to be remembered for that. He GREATLY appreciated FReepers' prayers last time, and though he was comatose at the end, Mrs. Elk conveyed your prayers and wishes for him verbally....

    I am so sad that I have to announce that our friend and fellow Freeper, PennsylvaniaMom, has passed this morning. Although most of us never met her in person, her sweet nature and sense of humor shone through in her posts. She was one of the first to join my Quinn and Rose morning show daily show list back in 2008. She was our 'weathergirl' regularly posting the Weather Bell posts. We went through children's weddings, our husbands' health problems and grandbabies births together. She was a loving wife, mom, and grandmother. I am crying as I post this. Rest...

    Received a message from his wife that Dale Reed has passed away. Dale was a long-term conservative activist and a FReeper since nearly the beginning of Free Republic. He was one of the founding members of our Southern California Chapter. Dale and his wife and several members from Southern California were present at the 1998 picnic and meeting in Fresno where our activism efforts through chapters were basically born. Dale was a good man, a patriot and great supporter of FR and our conservative activism efforts and will be greatly missed. Prayers for his wife and family. May his soul...

    Mrs. smoothsailing contacted me today to relate that longtime FReeper smoothsailing passed away yesterday, 9-13-16 of pancreatic cancer. Smoothsailing will be missed here at FR, he was a staunch conservative, a true patriot and a gentleman. He was active in the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Pennsylvania. On his homepage he said "I'M A DAMN PROUD VIETNAM VETERAN" and he surely was. Rest In Peace, my FRiend. One day we'll meet on the other side. smoothsailing's homepage
  • Message from "Basil"'s family (Basil has passed 7/22)

    Dear Freepers Basil, suffered a stroke in early January. It left her paralyzed on her right side and unable to speak. She's got very limited speech and her mental faculties are diminished. She spent many weeks in a therapeutic hospital but when it became apparent that her condition wouldn't improve, our family decided she'd be much happier at home. Hopefully we can minimize her suffering and keep her comfortable. Please pray for her, and Mr. Basil who is an amazing care giver and hasn't left her side.

She was born March 11, 1966 in Indianapolis, IN and passed away at home in Valparaiso, IN of natural causes. Besides her sweet and loving Maine Coon cat Elsa, who lived with her, she leaves behind one son, her parents, one brother and one sister; as well as a niece and nephew who she loved dearly. She also leaves behind countless friends she made over the years online. But she spoke often of...

    n goods. When Jerry Denton died the other day, at age 89, the obituaries led with graphic accounts of how he defied his North Vietnamese captors in a TV interview intended as anti-U.S. propaganda. He blinked his eyes: each blink a Morse Code signal. The message: "T-O-R-T-U-R-E." The enemies were torturing their American prisoners. The world needed to know. Denton reckoned correctly the price for spilling the beans so publicly: torture, beatings, more of the same. In his postwar memoir of captivity, "When Hell Was in Session," Jerry Denton described one Vietnamese technique of persuasion. He would sit on a...
