Querida familia Córdova Ridder: nuestro más sentido pésame por la partida de nuestro querido Tanllo. Mi padre Alfonso (93 años) y mi madre Francisca, me encargan que les transmita su pesar. Hasta hace unos tres años, Tanllo le llamaba a papá y tenían largas charlas, las cuales mi padre recuerda con especial afecto y añoranza. Por mi parte Anita, solo tengo recuerdos maravillosos de su cariño y especial acogida cuando les visité, hace muchos años. Por favor, si deciden visitar el Ecuador, será un honor compartir con ustedes gratos momentos. Descansa en paz querido amigo Tanllo.

I am so sorry for your loss. I believe that my first child, a son, was one of his first "deliveries" in September of 1963. I have nothing but wonderful memories of Dr. Cordova as my physician. He was a kind, compassionate and humane gentleman. We shared many laughs and conversations over the years I lived in Newark. He will be missed by many whom he served well.

Please accept my sincere sympathies on your loss. I was a long time patient of Dr. Cordova's and my memories of him was a kind and gentle man who was always smiling. Even running into him at Christiana Mall once or twice he would always stop a minute to chat and never walked away without shaking your hand. He will be missed by many.
