The Gift of a Smile by Corney Vernot was one of the most appealing stories I have ever read. I enjoyed this throughout the story I was engaged. The last line really had a great twist, "It was the only thing worth a damn that he'd given his daughter." I as a reader never expected this twisting end. I was moved because it made me think about my parents and how I am who I am because of them. A round of applause to Corney Vernot whom I thought did a fabulous job.
