My Falfurrias Friend, Sevedeo is now 'In the Hands of the Lord' and is resting Peacefully. May the Lord also give Comfort to his Family.

The memory I have about Sevedeo is when I saw him in 1967 while he was in Japan convalescing after being wounded in Vietnam. I was on R&R visiting my brother Tomas who was in the Air Force serving in Japan. We had learned that Sevedeo was in Japan and after a few inquires, we learned where Sevedeo was and we visited him and took him out for dinner. We had a Great Time!

The attached picture shows, from left to right; my brother Tomas, me and Sevedeo.
