what others are saying:

~~ Thank you so much for being our guest speaker.  You did a wonderful job!  I think you knew from the standing ovation that you received that the room was filled with hearts full of love and devotion for "special kids".  Keep up the great work!            Marie Celulski, President, Sunshine Foundation

~~ I’ve heard from many that this was the best session we have had yet, so congratulations.                                Kevin Smith, CEO Goodwill Industries.
