My two boys came home buzzing after their seminar – one with countless stories you had shared with them and the other with the utmost respect for a woman who not only knew what an Alienware computer was – but actually owned one !! I love the fact that they can relate to you and even more so that you have opened up a channel of support to them if they ever needed it.
