I remember you and your parents before the horrible tragedies took place. At Lady of the Sea General Hospital, Drs. Almaden,Vinluan and Maroma were close friends of your father. We had some great times sharing international cusine at different staff homes. God bless you. This is a wonderful way to show honor to your parents.

You seem to both be quite successful..Your parents must be looking down with such pride..Just know that I’m rooten for the two of you….God’s blessings to you!!!

Thanks for sharing your parents’ incredible journies with all of us. I can only imagine how difficult this month must be for both of you, but opening up and sharing this will help to sort things out in life. There is one thing I do know, your parents are proud of all your accomplishments. And they are with you and your families always!
Christine Maroma said: February 15th, 2011 11:23 am
Wow it’s been such a long time, but I’m so glad I found y’all. First I want to say how grateful I am for your parents because if it weren’t for your dad I wouldn’t be here today! He introduced my parents waaaay back in the day which has been such a blessing to us all. Who knew he was such a matchmaker?! I remember coming to visit y’all fairly often and I loved going to your house because y’all had the best toys! Even though I was probably too young to be touching y’alls stuff I always had such fun and I just adored y’all! I know our parents were very close and that your parents have touched all our lives in a special way. Thank you for sharing your story.

You would have never guessed that the 2 of you went through that looking at you 2 today. Your parents would be so very proud! I remember the food that your mother cooked. I remember the hole your dad dug in the ground, right outside your house, to cook a pig in. That was the best pig I ever ate! Your birthday parites were amazing. The sleepovers were amazing! All such great memories! Alta you look like your dad, Alfie just like your mom! I love you girls! Thanks for sharing your story! Im always here!
Melissa Flores-Lacsina said: February 14th, 2011 2:01 am
Awww…What an amazing story and you’ve touched my heart with your story. I met/saw your dad when you guys moved to San Francisco and lived with the Seludo family in front of Balboa H.S. I’m not sure if you remember me but I am one of Myla’s closest friend. God Bless you & Alta. I’m sure your parents are so proud of you both. Take Care.
Keisha Drewett Hitzfeld said: February 13th, 2011 6:32 am
I didn’t meet you guys until after all this happened…well…during your mom’s accident. BUT…I knew what happened to your dad. Small town and everyone knows everything! I lived in Galliano with my mom and dad. We had no family there, just like you! I grew up with my mom trying to teach me how to take care of myself if something ever happened to her and my dad. When your dad was poisoned, my mom said, see…do u understand that things happen! You need to be prepared… Which was good and bad. I always has adult worries on my mind while I was a kid! When I met both of u, I never talked to u about what happened. I’m sorry about that! You always held yourselves together like nothing happened… Rock soild…i always thought that there was no way I could be as strong as both of you! I thought about both of you and what happened very often. Before I became friends with y’all on facebook, I told my husband about y’all… That’s how much I admire your strengh and courage to become the wonderful people that u r!!!!!! I’m so happy to see u guys exploring and dealing with this b/c I’m sure u really couldn’t before now. You had to move forward and get pasted it without looking…or u would have got stuck! Love and admire both of you from the both of my heart!

I am sure your parents are looking down from heaven and are so full of pride for all that both of you have accomplished. It is the one thing that parents want… to know that no matter what, they have instilled the best in their children to get through life no matter what. Lito and Ninfa were wonderful parents and friends and will always be remembered.
Jeff Concepcion said: February 10th, 2011 9:15 am
All I can say is I know it takes a very special type of person to go through the things you both have and especially at such a young age. I remember having the greatest time at your house on those long weekends. Like my dad said it was the best.. all the adults cutting up, drinking, signing, cooking and eating just the best. Knowing what you both have been through and to see you two, your beautiful families is just Awesome!!! God bless and take care
Frank Concepcion said: February 10th, 2011 8:33 am
I have the greatest admiration for both of you Alfie and Alta. For what you two went through at an early age and not give up so easily and fight through the adversaries is just amazing. We will never forget your Mom and Dad, they are one of the nicest, friendliest, generous people we ever met. I always remember the times we spent our weekend at your house in Cut Off just having fun, singing, drinking, cook off, mahjong and your Mom and Dad just put up with us and didn’t care, they just want to have a good time. God bless Love, Uncle Frank
Randy Allemand said: February 10th, 2011 7:33 am
Wow, that’s a great idea and I know y’all will do a great job! The first time I met y’all dad was at LCO for a basketball physical. Well, being I had just started going out with Alfie it was a very strange feeling, but he was a pro about and evetualy the color came back to my face. Anyway good job girls and good luck!
Angi Bourque said: February 10th, 2011 7:30 am
WOW! I have tears, you both are so strong and this is an awesome tribute to two very special people. Alta, you have always amazed me with your strength of handling what most can’t. I can’t wait to hear more about the Seludo family and your journey. God Bless and Much Love.
Danielle Concepcion said: February 10th, 2011 6:39 am
Your parents were amazing people and we have always considered them family. I admire the strength and courage that the two of you have. I will never forget your parents and all of the childhood memories we shared as a family.
Renee Norsworthy said: February 10th, 2011 5:22 am
Alta and Alfie what an awesome way to honor your parents. I have never meant two stronger women in my life. I am so proud to be called your friend. Life has thrown you some very hard circumstances and everytime you have bounced back with more drive. Y’all have accomplished so much in your young lives and your parents would be very proud of you. I love you both and good luck on this journey. I hope it brings you both peace and closure.

What a wonderful project! I applaud the both of you for facing life with strength and hope. I wish you all of the best with this endeavor.
Mike Nguyen said: February 9th, 2011 5:07 pm
What the both of you are doing is amazing with a tribute about your parents and your family’s story. I only know from stories that I have heard and the pictures that I have seen. After the project is finished, I will get to know more about your parents and all the stories. What a great way for people on the outside to really see how wonderful your parents were and more importantly the strength that the family has keeping it together. I myself can and will learn from the Seludo story.
Barrett Danos said: February 9th, 2011 5:04 pm
From someone who grew up knowing both of you and what life threw at you and both of you stood together and took on the world and overcame it all. Now seeing what both of you have accomplished so far at still a young age shows the strong will in each of you. What is really amazing is looking at Tristen and seeing your father in him. I wish the best for you both and your families and keep strong in all you do.
Melissa Orgeron said: February 9th, 2011 5:01 pm
Alfie and Alta, my heart still hurts for both of you and what you had to endure at such young ages. Your story is very unique, and I wish you both the best in your journey. I admire your strenghth.

Absolutely Amazing, heartbreaking, and heartwarming.. May the Lord bless your journey! The two of you were very strong as young girls and have grown into beautiful, exceptional women! Your parents are definitely smiling down at y’all from Heaven! Good Luck to the both of you in all that you do.

Alta, This is a beautiful expression of you and Alfie’s love and appreciation for your parents. Great story, and I am eager to help in any way I can to develop a videography of this project if you are ever interested. I believe this is a compelling story that I know people would enjoy a great deal. Much Love Doug

Amazing story…yet to be completely told. Lots of admiration for the inner strength it took to work your way through such intense adult situations at such a young age. Wow ladies!
Ausa Salem Faria said: February 9th, 2011 6:38 am
What a wonderful tribute to your parents and their legacy. You know I’m here for you to help in any way possible.
Earl Adona said: February 8th, 2011 7:56 pm
I am proud of you both! Let me know how I can help or contribute. I can’t wait to see your children start to reap the benefits of knowing where they came from and what their mom’s endured growing up….
Hailey Alleman said: February 8th, 2011 6:46 pm
Momz & Aunt Alfz, You two are such strong women that I admire and love so much. Ne Ne & Paw Paw Ludo were incredible people. I’m so glad you guys put this site together so we can know more about our grandpa, who we didn’t get to spend many years with or get to know well, and about our grandmother, a tremendously strong and remarkable person. My prayers are with you in this journey! Luvz!!!
