Farewell For Now
I admired another of your tribute poems (I was quite touched by your salute to Brooke.) Thank you for your send-off to Michael and acknowledging that he touched so many FanStorians. Warm regards- Joan

    Thank you, Joan. I miss Michael, he was one of a kind. Brooke, too. That was so nice of you to look for them. I hope it will be a long time before we are penning another sad tribute. Thanks again. :) Sandra xx

An excellent tribute, and a fine contribution to the book, if I may say so in this
belated review. Yes, we shall all know what lies beyond that Door Of Darkness...

    Hello LIJ. Thank you for the excellent review. I'm glad you enjoyed my poem tribute for Michael. He was special, as many on Fanstory have said. Yes, we''ll all one day go beyond that door from which none have ever returned. I appreciate your supportive comments very much, my friend. Thank you!!

Farewell For Now
This is a true and very concise eulogy for Michael. He did so much here.
He is probably learning more from the great masters now. Maybe even having
open mike nights there.

    Thank you, Joan. He was such a nice man, and too young to die like that. So sad. I can imagine him doing all that up in the big club upstairs! LOL. :)) Sandra xxx

reply by dragonpoet on 07-Mar-2019
    You're welcome. I never found out how he died. Just that he died.

    Joan

reply by the author on 07-Mar-2019
    No one knows for sure, but someone thought he'd had a stroke. He was recovering and sitting up, and the next news was that he had died. So sad. xx

reply by dragonpoet on 07-Mar-2019
    Thanks for the information. It is very sad.

A Poet's Heart of Gold
Hello sweet poet. I found you again at last. Mike (Walkerman) told me about your fine poetry and your bridal gown alterations for infant burial. I lost my granddaughter on this day in 2013. I just posted the story if you would like to read it. I am predominantly a prose writer of short works, but dabble in poetry. I am enjoying poetry more and more. I am sorry for no six is mine. This is by far and away worthy of a six. Your tribute to Michael Cahill was simply outstanding. He was a wonderful friend to many here on FanStory.
All my best,
Sally :+)

    Hello Sally! So sorry for this very late reply! Thank you for reading and for your lovely words. I am sorry to hear about your grandaughter and I will head over to your page soon to read. Yes, "Sweet Send Aways" is a organization started by a friend in memory of her son that passed. I am on of the seamstresses. I have my own loss and It has been a bit of a healing process. We have a room at Children's Hospital here in Milwaukee. It is a beautiful room where parents can view/choose/keep as many items as needed. Everything is donated. Again, thank you for this review...I will be sure to read your works soon :-)

A Dear Friend Is Gone
Hi Country,
I'm sorry I didn't see this post. I had hand surgery. I kind of fell off of things for a bit. I am back and I came to seek you out and will be reading a bunch of your stuff over the next couple of days. I wanted to check in with you and make sure you are okay. How are things on your end? I have been trying really hard to keep up with everything between messages, posts, etc - Mike's passing hit me super hard too - I just fell apart. I also did an entry into this book - a poem. I just was out in my own grief for a bit. But I knew I needed to circle back with a few people and now I am making the rounds. You were one of the first stops tonight. I am up late because I will be a vampire from here on out. I will follow up with more details in a message. However, I need to see how you are doing and if you are okay? When you have a chance, drop me a line and let me know - Okay? It appears you are writing here and there. I will try to get to review all that I haven't as soon as possible. Cheers, Fonda

    I have a book out on Amazon called The Blue Store I love the cover let me know what you think of the book it is only 19 pages long but I am proud of it.I hope you are feeling better and back amongst us.

reply by Ms. Snyder on 19-Feb-2019
    That is FAN FREAKING TASTIC!!!!! WOW, CONGRATULATIONS - I am going to buy it right now! That is so cool! Okay so now I know someone else who has a book. That makes 4 possibly 5 published authors - woo whoo!!! Cool! I feel so lucky to know all of you now. Also a little intimidated! I won't lie. I know that it takes a lot to do that. So Yes for sure I will read and review for you as quickly as I can because get this - I just recently canceled my Prime membership and then remembered I had 5 book reviews that I had to post - oops - so now I have to restart for at least a week, just in this financially crunchy time for me... but it will get better I know it! I'm so excited 19 pages of country here I come! Cheers, Fonda

Dear Friend Passed
When I think of death I think of the person being freed of pain, trouble and the cares of the world. You have expressed your thoughts well in verse. A lovely poem.

Good afternoon to you, RSpoet

You have penned this poem beautifully and almost took my breath away as I read it allowed.

Michael Cahill was indeed a man of many talents and as many good traits as any decent man, I've known.

You honor him well, my friend.

My favorite line among many--

The sparkling of water that slips through a glen

thank you

    Hello Tracey. Thank you for the splendid review. I'm glad you enjoyed my poem tribute for Michael. He was special, as many on Fanstory have said. I pleased that you noted the line about the sparkling water; it is the simple, natural images that resonate the best for me. I appreciate your supportive comments very much, my friend. Thank you!!

A Poet's Heart of Gold
I don't know why this poem showed up again because I know I have reviewed it before.
It is just as good as it was, a beautiful tribute to a friend of wit and charm.
Well penned and thank you for it
God bless
