I love to talk of sweet Toerag
(And that's not gonna change *G*)
But this is for another friend
So please don't find this strange.

She slipped into my life somehow.
I can't pinpoint the day
I realized she was special
But she's in my heart to stay.

Her cheerful disposition
Is every poet's gain.
You'd never guess how very well
She's acquainted with pain.

Our Official Passions Reader
Has become my dear friend
My respect and admiration
To this lady I do send.

Our own lovely Pepper
Gives our lives a special spice
And I just want to thank her
For being so darn nice!

Oh, Suthern~
This is a wonderful poem about a really wonderful lady.
She gives from her heart and is special to us all.
~Pepper~ gal, I join Suthern in her praise of your wonderful spirit.
Thanks, Suthern, for this opportunity to say that Pepper is a special gal.
(You're pretty gosh-darned terrific too!)

I have only to agree suthern
she sure is a special lady

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Pepper is definitely the salt of the earth. She's the oil in our crankcase. She's the marrow in our bones. She's the filling in our Twinkie. Huh? I'm losing it here!!!

hehe. Pepper, you know how I, and the others, feel about ya. Nice tribute, Suthern girl

Pepper is as Pepper was
And always she will be
A friend who throws the lifeline
When your stranded out at sea

Compassion and a loving heart
To all of us shes shown
While hiding and disguising
Any sorrow of her own

Always there to lend an ear
Always there to read
Always sending heartfelt cards
To those of us in need

Its quite amazing, I would say
That anyone could be
So pleasant and so fragrant
Like a fun- filled potpouri

She makes my spirit sour and dance
And warms me to the bone
While we talk and act like teenagers
Talking on the phone

With ever card or e-mail sent
With every single letter
My heart takes pause and whispers
Gosh, Id like to know her better

Suthern, you done good on this one! A great tribute to a great person

Pepper, you are the anchor of the forum, not seen but always there for everyone, and besides that, you're so cute!

Love you both
Liz

Marge: Why thank you, ma'am! *S*

Helmut & Denise: She is indeed... thank you!

Balladeer: Yup... consider it lost. *G* You went downhill after pepper is salt (and Twinkie filling is yuk! LOL)

Pepper: That was my intention... the brightening, not the blushing. (sly grin)

Elizabeth: Talk about a lovely tribute! *G* I like yours better! LOL. (Though I'm not quite sure about making your spirit "sour"... *evil grin*)

I have a few friends
as best friends ought to be
then one day came a'knocking
thru the web this lady came to me.

Can anyone imagine
just how angels do their work?
How they find such lovely folk
with their lovely little quirks?

For a soul sister I have found
and she, a ladder-stepper***
for we have much in common, she and I
and her name is "soul-sister Pepper."

***[outside joke]

Pepper, this doesn't say it all - you know that - but 'tis a good start!  Hurry back!

Hugs, Sunshine

Ah Suthern, an excellent tribute to an excellent person!  She is a blessing to many, including me  

I don't think I could find sufficient words to describe such a wonderful lady! Just know Pepper it's in the heart! ~Hugs~

Will be in my prayers and hurry back to us!

Yes, there ain't too many better,
Than that dear hot pepper,
She's really spicy we all know,
Like a red-hot burning jalapeno!

Now eatin' pepper burns my tongue,
But I eat them just for fun,
The taste is great, they add so much,
With red hot pleasure to the touch.

But I just replied
In my special way,
so just fill my face
with pepper spray!

You're both very much loved..
