Tacos Ensenada is real good, especially the fish tacos. Al Pastor, carne asada are also good but be sure to tell the cook if you don't want tomatoes on them. Sopes good too, be sure to ask for the "secret" hot sauce that they only keep behind the counter.

I am sorry to hear about your dad. COH is great.
I am not sure that there are places in the immediate area, but there are a couple of places I can recommend within a 10 minute drive max.
Dino's Chicken and Burgers. Okay, sounds like nothing much, but their chargrilled chicken with that sauce and fries is the best chicken I think I have ever tasted. They are in Azusa.
Also, there is a Thai restaurant on Huntington Dr in Duarte - Thai City. I have been there a few times and their food is really good. Great service, too.
There is also a really good Vietnamese place in Monrovia (lots of good places there). Pho Lemon on Lemon has great Pho. Peach Cafe (don't think they are open for dinner) has great breakfasts. The Monrovian is a good coffee shop type place on Myrtle.

La Paloma is decent Mexican, within walking distance at the corner of Buena Vista and Duarte Rd. Next door to the south, on Buena Vista, is Tommy's (not the big chain) Burgers, a better than average burger joint that also sells good Mexican, especially a really good menudo on the weekends.

Then there is an original Tommy's on Huntington and Mountain in Monrovia.
Also, I almost forgot - Gene's Grinders in Monrovia (on Myrtle & Walnut) - I just had their pastrami for the first time this past weekend and it was one of the best pastrami sandwiches I have had. They are only open til 3:30 or 4, tho.
There is also a place that has FANTASTIC fish tacos on Arrow Hwy near Irwindale. In a shopping center on the south side of the street. Shoot, for some reason I cannot remember the name. Does anyone know the name of this place? Their fish tacos are amazing!

Domenico's on Huntington Drive in adjacent Monrovia. Red sauce Italian. "Hoagie" sandwich is a really great version of a Philly cheesesteak, but with sauteed onions, peppers and mushrooms with Mozzarella or Provolone. Or have them build you a thin crust, double pepperoni and double sausage pizza. Or for just comfort food start with their minestrone followed by lasagna.
Wang's Palace in old town Monrovia. Good Hot and Sour soup, wor wonton soup, love their Yang Chow fried rice, shrimp lo mein, shrimp with snow peas, shrimp egg foo yung (get the idea I like shrimp?). Not on the menu, but if they have it in the kitchen, ask for beef with asparagus. The Mrs. swears by their orange flavored chicken (not breaded, with plenty of orange peel and hot peppers). Schezwan green beans, pot stickers, bbq ribs with hot mustard. I love this place.
