We are so fortunate to have known Leo and his family. He was the kind of individual whom inspired peace, friendship, and of course, his unbiased opinions about his views on life. His legacy will live in each and every one of us whose lives he touched. Farewell our friend.

I grew up knowing Dr. and Mrs. Hernandez very well -- they were wonderful friends to my parents, and I was lucky to have them as godparents. Dr. Hernandez lived an exemplary life and will be missed by all. He has left behind so much good; I hope his family takes some comfort in knowing that he will be with us always. My condolences to Karen, Robert, and Angel.
