Here’s what Teddy shared about her family’s best:

“The oldest living relative in my family is my aunt Marcie. I remember going to her house on all of the Jewish holidays and I always looked forward to it. Though I don’t practice Judism anymore, I miss those days! Whenever I fly back to minneapolis I always go visit my aunt. She is in a nursing home and has alzhiemers, so she doesn’t know me anymore. However, the important thing is I know and love her!

I would love to win this book.”
