Life has thrown me some wrenches lately so I haven't visited FS much this year. I have to say that Brooke was very dear to me. I took several classes from her and learned so much. She was so talented and such a great teacher during classes, in her reviews and just when answering questions. She spent so many hours reviewing each day. She is an icon.

I am delighted to know Brooke has an eternal flame. Thank you for the instructions on how to find it. I have missed her wonderful poetry. Not only do I enjoy reading it, I learn so much by studying it.

I imagine the angels are gathering around her and enjoying her poetry.

    I have to think so, too. Perhaps this will inspire you to add something yourself? I'd love to see you around here more. Thank you so much!

Hi, Robyn,

Thank you for taking this project to a wonderful start. I think it was inspiring to all those who did know Brooke and those of us who just got to know her a little. Regardless of how much knowledge one had of this wonderful woman, she certainly touched all of us.

Robyn: thank you for starting a remembrance book for Sawyer
and Miranda about Brooke. We loved her dearly.

She loved her garden of dandelions. Brooke loved to see the seeds
flow in the wind. I'm sure that these seeds touched each one of us
as we became better writers under her wisdom. I took her children's
poetry class. She told me she loved RG STAR. Brooke suggested that
I listen to his poems as he read them out loud. We can learn from the
masters on this site.

I'm sure Brooke is having fun in God's garden in Heaven. She's sharing
stories and poems with my Mom and other saints. So nice to keep her
memory alive. flylikeaneagle

Hello Roybn,
Wonderful, beautiful, magnificent...
How many synonyms must be strung
to form a string of pearls
only one, if truth be told,
the center gem outshines them all
as simple as a drop of dew
who took the name Brooke Baldwin.

It's amazing to see all she accomplished
listed in one place, and much more as well
I've been reading many of her poems
from her portfolio.
Simply beautiful.
Robert

This is extraordinary, Robyn. You spent so much time preparing this posting, which reflects so much love.

Reading her beautiful words put such a lump in my throat. I wish I could cry it out. I'm just feeling so, so sad. Sad for Brooke's family, sad for the loss of my loved ones. . .

This is a wonderful tribute to Brook. Adding her poems gives everyone a taste of her talent. You tell her story so well.
This is a great beginning to the book. I'm sure her family will appreciate having it.

Wonderful tribute book and opening, dear Robyn. I'm certain Brooke is perusing these in subtle form and beaming beautifully with each line. She touched so many with her generous kindness and lovely poems...including me. I may not be able to post in this book since my time on FS is limited right now (not reviewing more than two posts a day, though I may try to review some in this book...)
Brooke was a Fanstory Great. The six is in honor of her as well as this great book idea.

Love,
rd

PS You are too!

Thank you for writing this detailed article quoting some of Brooke's poems.I have read every poem she had written since i came to fanstory.
I knew about her demise only now. I was away and could not come to the site.
