What a wonderful tribute to Brooke. I especially feel bad for Sawyer whom she wrote about daily. They must have had a special relationship. He will miss her. Thank you for sharing this. Blessings, Barbara

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

    Yes, Brooke was very proud of her grandson, Sawyer. I'm sure this will be a great loss for him. Have a great day, my friend...Bill

True .I have read all the poems she had written ever since I joined this site.
Though i could never promote my poems to the first page ,she has read and reviewed almost all my poems.I used to wonder at the amount of work she used to do
I once asked her if she ever wrote a poem without rhyming .she replied never but after i remember just one poem with out rhyming.I dont remember the reason

    Thank you my friend for your excellent review, I appreciate it. Yes, I agree, she most certainly spent a lot of time at her computer in order to turn out the amount of work that she did.

    Have a great day and keep writing...Bill

I have absolutely nothing more to add as you have said it all and said it all so well, Bill. All I am able to say is that I agree with everything you've written here about her.
Brooke was one of the most compassionate people I've ever known. She was a mentor, and a friend.
Your poetic tribute near the end of this write says it best, I think.
A wonderfully well written tribute to a Fanstory legend.
Bravo, Bill.

    Thanks Deano, I appreciate your wonderful review and I'm sure Brooke does also. As you said, she was a legend here and that will never change. Brooke had a God-given talent for writing poetry.

    I seem to recall saying those very same words to you after reviewing a few of your first poems.

    I hope and pray that your health is on the mend. Take care of yourself, my friend...Bill

    I'm currently in the hospital's cardio care unit while I am typing you this response, Bill.
    I've been here since Monday due to swelling in my legs and feet caused from my Congestive Heart Failure.
    Your prayer would certainly be appreciated, my friend.

    Deano: I'm so sorry to hear that. But at least you're at a place where they can give you the help you need.

    I've already said a prayer for you and I will keep you on my list. I can probably round up many more prayers for you if you would allow me to post this in the forum.

    I'm a strong believer in prayers Deano. The more the better, is that agreeable to you? Take care my friend and get well soon...Bill

reply by Dean Kuch on 20-Mar-2019
    Sure, Bill. I would appreciate that very much.

Hello Bill,
I never met Brooke, but after reading so many tributes, I feel I like her.
I love the rolling on the floor laughing my butt off anecdote.
And I agree with Brooke, I think dandelions and dandelion clocks are beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

I just love your tribute to Brooke. You've capture the elements about her that everyone on the site her encountered her was graced by. She always extended a welcoming hand, with gracious humour and skill. I too had hoped she would return to us one day, but it was not to be.

Most lovely tribute indeed.

Gloria

    Thank you very much Gloria for your heartfelt review, I appreciate it.

    Yes, I agree with you, Brooke was certainly a gracious lady in every way. I thank God that most of us had the opportunity to know her.

    Have a great day Gloria and keep writing...Bill

I guess we all have one of those stories. I didn't know her well, but she helped me with several poems. Her favorite poem of mine was Half-Dollar Blues. She helped me edit it, then took the poem to school and took it apart with her students. What an honor.

Best of luck with the book!
Have a great day and God bless.

Hi Bill,

Awwww - This is an absolutely beautiful tribute to our sister poet, Brooke. I did have the good fortune to know her, as she was here during my 10+ year absence.

One offering for your consideration:

"desire, and talent in order to do that."

I think this would read more fluidly if you were to replace the last five wirds with something like "to accomplish that."

Thanks for sharing.

Jan

I made it all the way to the dandelion paragraph... I met Brooke when I first joined too, just about seven years ago. I agree with every word of tribute you've written, and I'm in tears again.

    Hello Dawn: Thank you for your heartfelt exceptional review, I really do appreciate it.

    Losing a good friend does make us shed a few tears, thank God. It shows how much we really cared for that person. I've shed a few myself.

    Have a great day my friend...Bill

    You're very welcome. Have a great day too.
