Our most heartfelt thanks that the Leeuwin has provided a chance for our grandson to learn and experience a once in a life time opportunity that we can only hope will open a new door for his future. It will be up to us and him to reap the greatest benefits from the Leeuwin’s graciousness. I will wipe a small tear from my eye and say again, thank you. Boy I cannot wait to see his face when he reads this news.
