I would like to wish every contestant the best of luck at World. I can't believe I will not be there,as OLM is just like family to myself and my daughter Laura. For those of you that are new,be prepared for an amazing time filled with new friendships and lifelong memories. For all of you wonderful ladies that I have known and love dearly, SMILE,SMILE,and SMILE some more and remember why it is that we work so hard. Trust me when I say that when you wear that crown,you are apart of something very special and you will NEVER forget that feeling. When you enter your first OLM pageant you not only experience something wonderful and fun,but you become a new family member. Once a winner always a winner.....I want all of my family to know that we (Laura Triem, Jodee Ransdale & Myself) may not be there in person,but know that we are there in spirit. Have the time of your life,make new friends and I can guarantee you will make memories that will last a lifetime.
So congratulations to the most amazing family I have ever had the pleasure being apart of.
Ms.Teri, Laura and I love you and your family,thank you for working as hard as you all do and keeping your mothers dream alive. 50 years and counting........
