Yes Brooke was everything you said in your tribute and more. She was a teacher and a friend. I think she reviewed everything I ever wrote and corrected my mistakes. I referred to her as the Queen of FanStory and I do believe she was, for so many years. I doubt there will ever be another. Nancy:)

    Hi Nancy. I think I had been on the site just a few years before Brooke became ill. I always enjoyed her poems because they had such a spirit of joy. judi

This work has reached the exceptional level
This was a very touching write about Ms. Baldwin, who I didn't know or read. For whatever reason, she didn't come through with anything new in the time that I have been in Fan Story, but this up above has given me a taste of what I missed out on. It sounds as if I would have enjoyed not only her writing but her reviews. I am sad that I didn't get to know another beautiful soul here in this forum. I am very sorry for the forum's loss and for yours as well as her family's. You have touched me enough with this writing that it deserves my 6 stars. Fonda

    Thanks so much for your review and comments, Fonda, and special thanks for the lovely six stars. Although she has been unable to write for over three years, her work remains on the site. Look for adewpearl and discover for yourself her great poetry. I'm sure you would have been a fan if she had been active when you joined. She was so proud of her grandson Sawyer, and I'm glad she had a few years to enjoy being with him. judi

She sure did see life's flowers and not weeds. One of my granddaughter was born a few months after Sawyer. We used to tease about Sawyer and Kinley getting together, because as Grandma's we only wanted the best for our grandchildren.

    That's an interesting connection. Maybe you can keep track of Sawyer. I think Miranda is on social media. Thanks so much for your rreview and the lovely comments. judi

She sounds like such a marvelous person to know. She stopped Fanstory a year before I started so I didn't get to know her so I feel I have really missed out. Thanks for sharing.

Such a beautiful tribute to Brooke. She did make a lasting impact and yours touches on those petals lightly as it should be.

Excellent addition to Robyn's book, Judi and a pleasure to read.

I was on FS for a few years and off few. When I rejoined in late '18, I didn't
know why I wasn't seeing any of her poems. I LOVED HER POEMS!! Your
tribute to her is sweet and well-written.

    Thanks so much for your review and comments. I don't know how many years she was away from FanStory because of her illness. It must have been over three years. judi

Nice tribute, Judi. "It was always a thrill to receive a review from Brooke, too. If I expressed an opinion she disagreed with in an essay, she let me know--in her ladylike way. Her comments were always positive and helpful."

Amen. Bob

Judi, this is a beautifully written tribute to Brooke Baldwin. I totally agree that she was a major blessing to many of us and she indeed will be missed.

Judi,

What a perfect PERFECT summation!! If that isn't a great description of our Brooke, I've never heard one. I always appreciate your writing, as you know, but you have really outdone yourself this time. Yay!

Btw, I wonder if you realize your first couple lines are a teensy bit smaller than the others?

Thanks, again!!

    Thanks so much for your review and lovely words. I certainly appreciate it. I always felt better after I read one of her poems. It happens every time I try to change something! I think I changed some words in those lines and it messed up the font. I think I've got it fixed now.
