A lyric to an old love song was chosen by Patch readers as the best locket inscription in the "ANNIE's Locket of Love" contest.
In the iconic story, Annie, an orphan, wears a locket around her neck, a token of love from her biological parents to help her get through tough times.
As ANNIE returns to Broadway’s Palace Theatre, Patch community members in New Jersey were given a chance to express that same kind hope by creating their own locket inscriptions, with the best entries scoring a chance to win two tickets to see the show.
Voters chose Danielle Sheehan's entry out of a field of ten: "I would give a locket to my almost 4 year old daughter. It would have the words from Sea of Love which is a song I used to sing to her when she was a baby," Sheehan wrote.
The lyric is from the 1959 John Phillip Baptiste song, Sea of Love.
Sheehan said she would inscribe the locket with the following words: "Do you remember when we met, that's the day I knew you were my pet. I want to tell you how much I love you."
Congrats to Danielle, for your sweet response to our ANNIE Locket of Love contest. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize, and thank you to all who shared such inspiring captions.
