Looking through the poems I found Brooke. What a delight! As obviously many others, I loved her very much. Twice I joined one of her classes.
Althogh my mother tongue is not English, she treated me the same as all the other students and even encouraged me to publish one of my poems for children. I learnt a lot from her.
Thank you for writing this ode for her.

I don't believe Brooke (adewpearl) passed. I didn't take any classes with her, but she critiqued my work every so often. She was nice woman in her own ways, and an exceptional writer too. adewpearl will be missed my many. May she rest in peace.

Lovely poem to honor her memory.

Hi Linda. I didn't know Brooke, but I knew of her through those on FanStory who did. I'm sorry for the loss of this talented writer as I know she meant so much to everyone.

To fix the spacing on your presentation:
Place your cursor at the end of "xxoo"
Press the delete button until all the empty line spacing below "xxoo" is gone OR shortens up to your liking.
Hugs,
Marilyn

    Hi Linda. I took a look at your poem and see the spaces are still there. Did you try what I suggested and it didn't work OR haven't you had a chance to try to fix it yet? Hugs, Marilyn

Hello L. Raven,
Lovely piece of Poetry.
These lines are particularly noteworthy:
"I always teased her about her dandelions being weeds.
But she and my granddaughter loved them."
"May You Rest In Peace Sweet girl." Amen!
An EXCELLENT TRIBUTE to Brooke!
Picture enhances its beauty.
[ I realize that I'm late; but better late than never. ]

    L. Raven, "..it's suppose to be in the 50's here...but it doesn't really matter when the wind chill is in the 30's..." Here lies the best part of your personality, POSITIVITY / OPTIMISTIC ATTITUDE, which I like most. Thank you very much for being in touch with me.
    With best wishes,
    ~ RP

Thank you for sharing your tribute to Brooke and adding her favorite daffodils as a complement. I met adewpearle soon after I joined FanStory and 2008, and I always hoped she would return after leaving the site for health reasons. She will at least always be with us in the Hall of Fame- Joan

Very nicely written tribute to Brooke, Linda. I think she would smile at all the lovely things you've mentioned as indeed they were the things she loves.

An excellent contribution to Robyn's book and a pleasure to read.

Gloria

    Hi Sweeter Than Sweet, I was always hoping she would show up on my pm one day...or a least in one of my poems and correct me...she always made me laugh when she would do that...but I am so grateful that she is there with Michael...and all the others who have passed...the site just isn't the same...it's still FanStory...but a lot of the ones that held it together are gone now...there are still a lot of us here...but not the same...sigh...I just told someone else...she was a classy chick...I am grateful for the pictures Robyn posted of her and Sawyer...I was always hoping that they were able to spend time together...I have never forgotten what you and Michael did for her when she got sick and had to leave...I just thought that was sure a special thing to do...I know Brooke is in heaven now...just think of all the amazing poems/writings that could be written with all those awesome writers up these...FanStory will rock the Heavens...thank you for a wonderful review my sweet friend...she will truly be missed...love you...Linda xxoo

In my opinion, a beautiful free verse tribute by a sensitive and gifted writer herself - the words are both inspired and inspiring, and to be cherished by all those who respected and loved Brooke. I wish someone would tell me how she died. I was stunned when I learned of her passing. She was here, and then suddenly, she was gone. What happened - please tell me...

    Hi Eve, I know she had a massive stoke...and never truly recovered from it...I talked to her a few times after it...and she had sounded like my mother after she had hers...Brooke said she remembered who I was...and we talked about FaStory...and Sawyer...I had asked her how him and Miranda were doing...but she could never talk long...after that...Miranda came and took her where she could get help...it was heartbreaking...for us and her family...I miss her so much...I would wait to see if she would show up in my pm...I know she is now at peace in Heaven with Michael Cahill...they were good friends...and there are so many more of us up there now...sigh....she was an amazing lady...thank you my sweet friend for a wonderful review...love you...Linda

reply by evesayshi on 20-Mar-2019
    Oh, Linda, I am so sorry to hear what happened to such a remarkable lady. To suffer a stroke and as a result, lose her exquisite writing - life is not fair at times. Thank you for providing the information - she was an amazing phenomenon. I will always miss her - her and Michael Cahill. You are very special as well, Linda, with your own amazing talent, and I love you too. Please be and stay well and continue to be as prolific in your writing as usual - and - you are most welcome...Eve

reply by the author on 20-Mar-2019
    thank you for all your kind words Eve...sometimes I don't understand life...I only know you have to believe and have faith...all I know is her and Michael are home now...at peace...God Bless...xxoo love you

reply by evesayshi on 20-Mar-2019
    I agree, and life is often a mystery to us all, but we contend...Eve
