  1. I’m so sorry for the loss of your love one. May the God of comfort and tender mercies (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort you while we await His Kingdom government that will end death…… and make all things new (Revelation 21:4,5)

  2. Leo was a wonderful sweet man and we feel blessed to have known him. We will remember him for his sweet smile and warm heart.
    His family should rest assured that if there truly is a heaven, Leo is there front and center with my sister Mary.

    Cordova Families – Please know you are all in our thoughts and Prayers

  3. Blessings to all of the Cordova family. We love all of you so much and feel your sorrow. Leo was such a role model for all of us who were fortunate enough to have been a part of his life. We are truly going to miss him. Our prayer for you is that God will comfort you at this sad time and the memories you have of this wonderful man will bring joy to your hearts. With all our love, Christine, Don & Donny

  4. Aunt Susie,

    I hope the Lord brings you and your family the much needed comfort and peace during this sad time. Our condolences to you and your family.

  5. God Bless Leo’s wonderful family. I always enjoyed our talks and will miss this wonderful man. My condolences to the family. Leo raised great kid’s and is smiling down upon them from Heaven. I feel truly blessed to have known him!

  6. Suzie, just wanted to let you know I’m thinking about you. Leo was always so concerned to ask how was Billy doing. I love the way he always loved to dress up and wear neat clothing, belts, hats etc. I will truly miss him. Hope you will be able to come back to the senior center soon and also exercise. I’m donating money to the 55 club in memory of Leo. The money will be put to good use as you know. Billy has a new left hip surgery so he’s on the mend. He had it the 31st of December. We go tomorrow the 15th to get his staples out. I think he’s on the mend.

  7. We know Leo will be sorely missed. Kathy and Bob have always shared what a wonderful father he was. This is a sad time but you can always treasure the good times you shared. Our prayers are with you.

  8. Sounds like a wonderful man who will be greatly missed! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time!

  9. Grandpa was one amazing man he taught us all so much and loved all of us that much more.
    He lived for his family and showed it in everything he did. I feel truly Blessed to call him Gramps
    and that my kids & I were so lucky to have the funny, silly, crazy, loving, outgoing, caring and so
    much more grandpa/great-grandpa in our lives. We will miss him & think about him each and every day!

  10. Leo, I will miss you my friend. You have always been a Great Person to me, a man that we should all look up to and take note on how to live your life. Thank you for all you have done for me. Wanda, Nettie and Natalie will miss you so.

    Our Heart goes out to Suzie and the Family, we will keep you in our Thoughts and Payers.

  11. I’am honor to know him. He was great man always had a smile. I will miss him. When I go into McDonald’s I know he will be smiling down. Susie I love you guys like family.

  12. I enjoyed our short talks at Silver Sneakers. It was a honor to attend your service this morning and was very pleased to hear from your family members. The most important thing was to know that you had put your trust in Jesus Christ. I know I will have the opportunity to see you again. Susie, you are a dear lady and I pray for Gods comfort.
