Sevald Family

The earth shattered again today for a family who endured the devastation of loosing their Mother just over a year ago. Today they lost their father Matthew Sevald. One family should not have to endure this heartache once let alone twice. Matthew and Eva Sevald leave behind their four children Peter, Lilly, Charlotte and John. 
The impact these two had on everyone in their lives near and far will never be forgotten. 

We ask for anything you are able and willing to help this little family with funeral and medical costs and and to help with any future needs for these four children. A simple share of this link is most helpful. Thank you.
