Brooke White - what you see is what you get

Brooke was one of my favorites. She was the girl with the sunny smile and warm presence. I thought she was a very talented artist, and we voted for her often.

Last night at an American Heart Association fund raiser, I had the chance to visit with her. She graciously played for our benefit and stayed to talk with all her fans.

However, I have a feeling even if we were a rude bunch - she would have been just as gracious. She took time to truly visit with those around her. And I also found out she likes to read! And guess what's next on her reading list??

I always knew she was a smart girl! :) And just like on TV - she's brilliantly talented.
