View Full Version : Teri Smith Memorial Draw

October 8th, 2007, 08:55 PM
It's been almost a year now since my wife passed on--just two weeks before her first book was published.

In order to celebrate her life and her achievement in getting published, which was one of her life long desires, her co-author and I are running the Teri Smith Memorial draw.

It is very easy to enter so please come along and make this contest and remembrance of a very special woman, wife and mother something very special.

All the details and how the enter the draw are here (http://home.comcast.net/~sjmsmith44/contests.html).

I look forward to seeing you all, and wish you all a long, happy and successful life.

S.J. Willing.

Thanks SJ for letting us know about this contest. It's great that you're putting this up in rememberance of your late wife.

The question that you have to answer is really cool. I have some answers but I just have to choose which one to put
