In April 2012, Guido and Gloria Sequeira allowed me to videotape an interview with them in their home in Downey California. A short segment from that interview was published on this site a few weeks later, in which Guido describes his harrowing escape from Kowloon during the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong in December 1941. A few days ago I recalled how honored I felt to record these vivid memories, and to contribute them to the personal stories that are part of the Macanese community’s historical narrative.
That was the day I learned that Guido Sequeira had passed away after a brief illness. To provide a little part of what I felt during that interview, I am re-posting it as a personal eulogy for Gloria and her family. God bless you Guido.
