Linda,

I don't know why you are apologizing. It looks quite lovely here, too. Silly girl.

This is just beautiful, and even more so because it's clear every word is from the heart. I know the family will treasure it. THANK YOU!

This is just beautiful Miss Linda.
Dandelions...perfect.
She had a way of finding the whimsy
and the magic in a weed.
I loved her 'Sawyer' poems.
Such a lovely, heartfelt tribute,
blessings...

I too hoped she would return. Knowing this was coming still did not stop the blow to everyone. She was there for me and I remember the kind reviews. Your piece is a very well done tribute to a fine lady

My heart just hurts today. This isn't how i wanted to wake up or see. I have a post I'm ready to post as well. I bought the wrong certificate so I'm waiting so I can promote it. She was an amazing person who inspired many. I think we were all hoping she'd return but I understand why she couldn't. Today is just a sad day. We all have one more angel looking out for us.

Oh, Linda! I didn't know! Another of our favourites to join Heaven's Angels! She taught me so much, and when Sawyer was with his girlfriend, Chloe, we shared the joy of knowing my granddaughter was also called Chloe. I joined her classes, and... Oh, dear I just can't believe she's gone. To me, the number one spot and the second spot, in poetry, will always be Brooke's and Pam's.

She would smile at this tribute, my friend, the dandelions were her favourites. lol. Her life was Sawyer and Miranda, and I'm so pleased she spent these last few years near them. Well done, my dear friend. Love you lots. :) Sandra xxx

What a lovely tribute, Linda!
I didn't know Brooke, but I have read three posts about her here and a poem about her on Facebook.
I have also read some of her posts. I love dandelions too.
She must have been a lovely lady.
Thanks for sharing.

Angel-girl, you have nothing to apologize for -- this is a beautiful presentation, and a wonderful tribute.

Some minor nits to fix:

"I would wait (for) << omit this "for" -- you have a second one in the correct place.

"And she was never (too) far..." << not "to"

typo - "grandson"

"Along" - one word

Linda, I loved it! (And mystery of mysteries, your vase of dandelions comes with a sparrow on a windowsill -- the very bird that visited MY windowsill when I was so sad about losing Brooke...)

xx
Dawn

Since Brooke loved dandelions so and wrote about them so often, Linda, that I haven't been able to look at those dainty, vibrant yellow blooms as weeds since.
Her love of poetry, the compassion and patience she displayed, without fail, for her fellow human beings, and the undaunted love she had for young Sawyer, her grandson, as well as her entire family and extended Fanstory family made her a truly very special person, indeed.
There will never be another quite like her.
She will be sorely missed.
RIP, dear Brooke. I'll see you soon!

    Brooke was one of the first to take me under her protective wing when I first arrived at Fanstory nearly six years ago, Linda.
    I will never forget her.

Beautiful tribute. She had a writing talent that she spread around without difficulty. She would help beginning writers any way she could. She will never be gone as long as she's remembered. Shirley
