Wow, I wish I could send something to everyone who entered! It sure was a blessing to read your comments. I hope you've gotten a lot out of the books made available this past month. And please, do tell about your favorites---which books have helped you most of all on this widows' road?



  1. I WON, I WON, I WON, See? We do have hope for our "new" future! It's always nice to get some fun news to help us smile and replace a few sad tears. I do not believe in luck or coincidence. Even these tiny (actually, big) joys are also God's gift to us. I thank you, Ferree, but I give HIM the praise. :). (ReginaV)

  2. Hi Feree,
    you are a wonderful person.I am humbled by how out of your ashes you were able to create a chain of giving. Through your book draw competition many of us, though we did not win a book, were able to learn and draw life lessons from the comments that were made by other widows. May God continue to give you divine ideas

  3. Yes, Gertrude and Regina, God has given so many blessings and helps during this time of grief. His mercies are new every morning. I'm so glad that seeing all these books together shows that He is with us and He has put many people together with a passion to reach out and help widows. It's been a privilege to do this.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I am not always able to reply but your remarks mean a lot to me and will appear as soon as possible.

Using a computer rather than a cell phone seems to work better. Thanks again!
