I saw that Basil had not commented since January and gave her a call. I got her daughter who answered the phone. The news is not good for our FRiend Basil.
They sent this release:
As some of you know, our Mom, Mari (BASIL of Freerepublic.com) , 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.
Many people have asked how they can help our family. Most importantly, keep our parents in your prayers. Dad's an amazing caregiver but it's all very overwhelming. If you'd like to send cards or emails to our mom, we'll be sure to read them to her. (Her address is TAKEN OUT for privacy.) Please send emails to (taken out) and she'll print them out for her.
Thank you all for your love and support.
Paul, Jr (Pike); Mary (Ginny); Carl; Cynthia; and Linda
If you wish her address for a card or the daughter’s email so it can be read to Basil, PM me and I will send it. I do not post personal info out for everyone to see.
Or send me the message and I will pass it on!

That is sad. Saying prayers for Basil.
So sorry to hear this! Prayers up for Basil and family!
A message from Basil’s daughter
God bless Basil.
just tell her how much we all admire her strength, and that she’s in our Prayers.
Thank you very much for delaying this information. Will keep her and the family in prayer
Please FRmail me her address for a card
I read another thread on this a few days back.
Hated to hear of this. A lot of us have gotten together over the years in Washington, D.C.
Her daughter, duly named Pesto, sent a message for us. What a lovely lady, and I will keep them in my prayers. It can be very hard for the caregiving spouse indeed. I was impressed at all Basil did for us. I wish her all the best.
Prayers for Basil’s speedy recovery.
Prayers up for Basil.
Oh, no. I remember there was bad news about basil. Miss her posts!
Prayers are with her and her family.
I was off of FR for several years, battling a health challenge myself, but I remember Basil well and had the pleasure of meeting her personally. We were good FReeper friends back in the day.
Please let her family know I am keeping her in my prayers. She is a great lady and a true blessing to everyone who knows her.
Prayers for Basil.
Give Basil my best and tell her she is loved.
My prayers for her recovery.
Is there any further news on Basil?
