I pray that God gives your family and your kids the love and strength they need to get through this and through life. You are an angel to them and many. Love you Lidia. For you and your love ones from the lord through me....

Duele tu partida, duele mucho imaginar el sufrimiento de tu familia, duele no poder darles un abrazo para consolarlos. Dios te ha llamado a su presencia demasiado pronto, seguramente necesitaba un ángel como tú.
Siempre te vamos a recordar por el cariño tan grande que le tenemos a tus papás. Mi tío Ramón y mi tía Carmela, siempre tan buenas personas.
Que Dios te reciba en el cielo y si ves por allá a mi abuelito José Cortes dile que lo extrañamos y nunca lo olvidamos.
Descansa en paz Lidia Cortez
Recibe un abrazo hasta donde estés.

Lidia was my neighbor and friend. I loved how she and her family had celebrations in their back yard. Her father would cook and there were always lots of people. She and Rey would include us and once in a while we accepted and enjoyed great food and company with everyone.
I also enjoyed talking to her about her work. I admired her story of rising up to a legal assistant in a law firm. I know she was very valued at her firm as well as in her family. She was very proud of her job and humble about how she was able to balance it all so gracefully. She will be missed. With sorrow, Michelle and Tom Clark

To the Badillo and Cortez Families,
Lidia was that special someone who touched people's hearts in a way that very few can. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. I am deeply honored and blessed to have known her. She was a blessing in my life and I will forever carry her in my heart. Please accept my warm and heartfelt condolences.
