Robyn,

Thank you for initiating this tribute book project. Your comments are heart-felt and represent what so many of us felt about Brooke. I dare say there was no one like her on FS before her arrival, nor shall there be another such as she to grace the site. She was unique, and perhaps the most talented poet that I know. As you said, the end of an era.

I will be crafting a poem to include in the book.

Thanks again for your efforts in this regard!

-Ray

    Thank you, Ray. That warms my heart. It's hard to write something for a lady you admire so much to introduce some people to her. Words will never let them in one her grace or talent. I look forward to reading your tribute. Thank you!

Tried to Fan her but it would not allow me to. Lovely tribute wish I knew her better I think she reviewed a thing or two of mine. Good to see her and Michael Cahill in the Eternal Flame listing.

    Absolutely! I don't think her account is still active. It's being held in that eternal flame status so that members can still enjoy it. Thanks, pal!

Hi Robyn, what an amazing tribute to Brooke...I have been crying off and on sense I found out...I thought of her when Michael Cahill passed...when she got so sick he and Gloria stepped up and helped do so much to get everything to her that was given...it was amazing...now Michael and Brooke will be with each other...and some other wonderful FanStory writers...heartbroken...you wrote so many things on here that were going through my head all day...her love for Sawyer, and his love for critters...and her love of Dandelions...same as my granddaughters...tears sweet one...thank you and Gloria for explaining all this...I knew right away the poems were hers...God Bless...and the picture is priceless...May She Rest In Peace...you know I used to always wait for her to come to my sigh and correct my poems...she made me smile...love you much...Linda xxoo

Thank you for starting this book. Brooke was the best of the best in many ways, and she taught us as she entertained. I loved her subtle humor and wit. Her feel for expression in words remains unmatched in my memory. I'll be adding mine soon. :)

Hey Robyn you've done a fantastic job with this, and included many of the major signposts of Brooke's remarkable contribution to FanStory. I know she was always a source of inspiration and community spirit to me.

Just a couple of points, Brooke on average, posted about once every two days although occasionally more or less, but that would shake out reasonably accurate. She also earned the Writer of the Year Award in 2012 and the first Reviewer of the Year Award in 2015.

Another important feature is the eternal flame. So when you go into Community and drag down the find a member you will see on the immediate left, Buddies and next to it Eternal. Click on Eternal and there are a few names of members and Brooke's name is there. You might want to mention something about the Eternal Flame, but just a suggestion.

I will most definitely be contributing to your tribute book to dear Brooke and you've started off with something really nice. It's just such a treat to read her poetry again. The photograph is just beautiful too. :)

Gloria

Oh dear Robyn, I haven't done much reviewing today, but something made me check your page, and I am so incredibly grateful that I did. This wonderful tribute to Brooke will be in my bookcase to cherish. I will write something new for this book too; I just can't right now.

There is not one thing that could improve this, IMHO; not one thing.

Much love,
Dawn

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. I dont remember ever reading anything she wrote or receiving any reviews from her, but I've only been submitting on Fanstory since August. Very nice tribute.

reply by the author on 20-Mar-2019
    Oh, yeah, she's been AWOL since 2015. You missed a LOT... as you'll probably see from our comments. Thanks!Thanks, friend!

Thanks, Robyn. Sad news indeed. What a great way of remembering Brooke and showing her family how much we care. Thank you for your initiative and for providing so much in the way of background. Very much appreciated.

This is a sad announcement. I was so impressed with Brooke's work and she was always kind, but deliberate in her reviews. Your tribute, using her bio and work, is well done and will be another hallmark in the the Fanstory vault.

    Aawww? don't know about that, but I wanted to give those who didn't know her a chance to have an idea of what we had lost. Thank you!
