    I was so moved by the Young Sibling Trio and the fact that the Sharks were ALL IN made this TV moment really very emotional & that much more Special for these orphaned children! The product is one I would purchase, in fact two; one board for veggies, another for carving meats!
    I will make my purchase if William Sonoma has them, I’d be interested in supporting this family. Their strength and courage and ability to present their Father’s Product was incredibly touching. They’ve made their parents proud no doubt, and a beautiful impression on anyone watching!
    God Bless
