OH my God. I just read your poem so sad that Brook passed away. She was so sweet. And she adored Sawyer. We both enjoyed writing to each other. She will be never forgotten. Love u Terry xoxo

Beautiful sentiments, well said. Did you live near her or reminiscing about just your Fanstory relationship? I remember her and others from when I participated more. Lots of good people on this site.
God bless you and thanks for sharing this beautiful remembrance!

I am also so sorry that brooke has left us for ever. I used to check fanstory if there was any news of her .
since I was away I got this news only now.
I loved her poems.

This is a lovely tribute to Brooke, and so beautifully composed. A very sweet tribute to what sounds like such a beautiful life. I like how you put a lot of thought into each line and made it tight. You pointed out some great qualities and things to remember her by. Very excellent. It held my attention.

Such a lovely tribute to your online friend. I felt like I knew Brooke after reading this. So sad to hear she died. Online friends can be closer than real life friends in some ways. We share our inner most thoughts and feelings through our writing.

And I love the animation. So lovely and goes so well with your words. Beautifully written!

A wonderful tribute to your dear friend. Inspiring on a Sunday morning. Saying good-bye is so tough, but the pain of it should remind us to maximize our time and sharing with those special to us while we can. I was given this thought years ago at the passing of someone special: "Never let the sorrow of good-bye diminish the joy of your time together." Enjoy your day and others...

Hi Linda
What a wonderful tribute that you have written to Brooke. It is so perfectly worded. It is so sad to lose a love one and the older you get it happens more and more. Take care. Love. Jen. X

Ignoring the poetry aspect of the post, I want to join you in your wonderful tribute to your friend, Brooke. I did not know her, but out of respect for a writer I have a deep respect for (yourself) I send commiserations and condolences for your loss.

Your friend....

Bill (WildWithWords)

Linda, this is a lovely tribute to Brooke. I miss her too. I always told her to find a publisher for her children's poetry. Perhaps Miranda will do that one day. Brooke's talent was unique. She was a real master of the art.

...and blowing dandelion clocks...
Nice heartfelt memorial to someone we all loved at FS. When I first saw her FS name, I took it to be a twist on "adieu Pearl"... I suppose it is that now.
Thanks for this piece. It reminded me of what we will all miss.
