She LOVED Being On Camera. So When Her Husband Died, Her Children Gave Her This…
By Michael Harrell
When Pat Seftel’s husband died in 2009, her children worried that the 72-year-old widow would be lonely and lose touch with children scattered all over the country. So for Christmas, the kids bought Mom an iPad, leaving son Josh to teach her how to use the tablet. With his iMac on one end and Mom’s iPad on the other, the younger Seftel embarked on a journey that not only brought his mother into the 21st century, but the family closer than ever.
See how a simple app and a little bit of time can truly bring people together in this story of a mother, a son and an iPad.
