  1. To the family of Lenora, I worked with her at CHOA for several years. She was always so pleasant to talk with. Her smile and positive attitude will surely be missed. Prayers for comfort and peace as you endure this loss.

  2. When I was 6 years old my sister Mercedes and my brother-in-law Jose made me an uncle with my niece Lenora. My parents were so happy when she was born. She was their first grandchild. We were so close in age she was more like a little sister to me. She always had a sweet personality. She never lost that as she grew older. After she married she made me a great uncle with the birth of her daughter Hannah. She had that same sweet personality I saw in Lenora. Lenora was a loving and carrying soul who will be missed by her family and friends. God bless you Lenora.

  3. Lenora was the light of my life. We were engaged for about 2 years. Even on days when she was sick, not feeling well she was a pleasure to be with. I will miss her so much!

  4. Dear Joe and family,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, my condolences. May Lenora Rest In Peace, and may you and your family find peace and be strengthen with the idea that she now rests in the arms of the Lord!!

  5. Dear Joe and family,
