    Thank you very much Barb for your excellent review, I really appreciate it.

    As you well know, Brooke had a "friendly" talent and never flaunted her knowledge. And, she was very well liked by everyone that came in contact with her.

    Have a great day Barb. Take care...Bill

Many thanks for sharing your tribute to Adewpearl. I met her soon after I joined FanStory in 2008, and like everyone else found her to be so talented and giving. I had hoped that she would be able to return to the site, but at least she lives on in our Hall of Fame. I relished your dandelion story and concluding, rhymed quatrain--one of her favorite forms. Smiles- Joan

    Thank you so much Joan for your kind words, I do appreciate it.

    Yes, she will certainly live in our Hall of Fame. Frankly, I don't believe Fanstory will ever see another writer of her knowledge and popularity.

    Have a great weekend my friend...Bill

    I totally agree! Have a serene weekend as well- Joan

Hi Bill, I loved your write about Brooke. I have now read so many sweet things about her, and so many things about dandelions! I'm going to tell you what I told someone earlier this week... a weed is simply defined as something that you don't want there... You can have a stand of lilies in the middle of your iris, now the lilies are weeds. They are where you don't want them. If she wanted the dandelions in the lawn, they weren't weeds... lol

    Thank you, Susan for your excellent review, I appreciate it.

    Yes, I agree about the dandelions. She finally convinced me of that over the years so now I consider them to be beautiful flowers. lol

    Have a great day Susan and take care...Bill

I have read so many lovely tributes to Brooke and this is another. I didn't know this lady but she must have been extremely talented and very much loved by the community here.

    Thank you, Judy, for your excellent review, I appreciate it.

    Yes, she was very talented, friendly, polite, very well liked by everyone and ranked the number 1 poet from her first year (2008) until the time she had to leave because she was diagnosed with MS.

    She was a writing teacher at the college level for many years until she retired and joined Fanstory. She then became a teacher here at Fanstory and taught many of us the proper method of writing poetry. She really was a wonderful woman.

    I wish you a belated welcome to Fanstory. I hope you have a long and enjoyable stay...Bill

    Hello Christine: Thank you for your warm and emotional review, I truly appreciate it.

    I'm very pleased that my words helped you to somehow relate to Brooke. To be honest, I truly do not believe that her popularity and talent will ever be matched here at Fanstory.

    Have a wonderful day my friend. Cheers...Bill

Cedar, this is a touching and very beautiful tribute to Brooke. As a newcomer, sadly I never had the opportunity or honour to know her. Your tribute has introduced her to me and I am very grateful to you for that.

Thank you
John

    Thank you, John, for your excellent review, I appreciate it.

    I'm very pleased that my words introduced you to Brooke. I'm sure if you had gotten to know her, you would have said the same thing.

    Have a great day John. Take care...Bill

Thank you for writing and sharing this. I never got to know Brooke, but this helped me know more about why she meant so much to so many. It is very well-written and I can feel the emotions. I am sorry for the loss of your friend here.
Blessings, Cathy

    Hello Cathy: Thank you for your wonderful review, I appreciate it.

    Yes, Brooke was a special lady. She touched so many writers here, in a way that made them feel that they could accomplish anything, myself included.

    She had a soft, gentle way of making us better writers. Most teachers try to drive their point down your throat, but Brooke was totally different.

    Brooke taught writing at a college level for several years, so she was definitely qualified. She made learning fun and that's why so many members loved and respected her.

    Have a great day Cathy...Bill

What a touching, profound tribute. Brooke was certainly one of a kind. Your words expand on the persona to which I only brushed a few times. I felt honored to have known her talent to write whatever flowed from her pen, as well as her ability to balance praise with teaching when she would review my work. She had a way of making me feel as if I could hold my own on the site and for that I will be forever grateful. God called home a good woman with a kind soul. Thanks to you, Bill, for paying kind respect to a fine person and for filling in a lot of blanks about the writer I knew as adewpearl.
Nancy

    Thank you so much Nancy for your terrific review and rating, I truly appreciate it.

    As you said, she had a kind soul. Brooke was always willing to help anyone become a better writer and she certainly had the talent and ability to do that. She was a writing teacher at college level for several years.

    Have a great day Nancy and take care of yourself...Bill

I have read several poems and articles about this lady that I had only met (through reviews) a few times before she was whisked away from us by illness. This simple article seems to tell it like it was, and so I learnt a little bit more about a remarkable character whose shadow, or rather whose light, is still cast across FanStory today.

    Thank you for your excellent review, I appreciate it.

    Yes, she was a remarkable character in more ways than one. She touched a lot people on and off Fanstory. In my opinion, she probably was the most popular writer since Fanstory was originated.

    Have a good day my friend...Bill
