WHAT IS THE MOST MEANINGFUL GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED FOR CHRISTMAS?

“Just being with my family. Because if it wasn’t for (my grandmother) I’d still be where I was.”

- Brooklyn Rambsel, 13, of Slidell

“My granddaughters. They’ve enriched our lives. They’re good to have around.”

- Kathie Wernimont, 55, of Slidell

“One year I had an old uncle (Brenson Clark) who drove here from Corinth. He pulled up in front of my store and honked the horn because he couldn’t get out. He brought me a small mirror. He drove all the way over here to make sure I’d get that mirror for Christmas.”

- Shari Brooks, 64, of Paradise

“My son (Jason E. Bentley) was killed overseas by a suicide bomber in ’03, and I received some mementos that Christmas from him. Those would be the most meaningful.”

- Bill Bentley, 72, of Hurst
