Thank You so much.  May God always bless you and everyone else you hold close to your heart.

Very touching. Touched home. Almost cried.

Mrs. Sequeira was very clear and impacted my mental and recovery for the better and can relate to her whole story ad especially the things at home she went through with family.

Came late but from what I heard, her message at the end was good.

I thought the presentation was great. Her words hit me in the heart and made me take a long hard look at my own situation. Thank you for sharing your experience.

She is well spoken and hits home. 

It was an amazing presentation and a good speech. Thank You!

It was a pleasure. Thanks for coming.

It was a pleasure to hear about these things from a mother/wife perspective.

Endorsements for Speaking Engagements

Ms. Sequeira shared her story of losing her husband and especially her daughter, Lori, at the “Joy of Providence prayer breakfast” at the Providence Marriott Hotel in Rhode Island.  We are the Magnificat, a Catholic Women’s Ministry of Providence.  Her speech was beautiful, powerful and a moving story that touched so many of us today.Louise, Margo, Pat, Arlene and Midge ~ The Magnificat Service Team

Ms. Sequeira is a very inspiring speaker, who shared her heartfelt and painful journey of faith and renewal as she dealt with the overwhelming and disastrous effects of alcoholism on her whole family.  Alberta was a featured speaker at our Magnificat, “Joy of Boston prayer Breakfast.” We are an international interdenominational Catholic Ministry.  Ms. Sequeira was recommended to us by the Rhode Island Chapter of the Magnificat after she had spoken at their location. ~ Patricia J. Waterman, Medway, MA.

Alberta’s faith and family support, especially from her husband, Al, gives her the strength to not only write to educate readers but she has become a public speaker about this terrifying, deadly disease.  Alberta and her immediate and extended family believe that communication, and knowledge about this disease, persistency and love are essential in the fight against alcoholism. ~ Cheryl A. Heindrichs
