“Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I send his family and friends our deepest condolences and sympathies. Please know that you will remain in our thoughts and prayers,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Too many of those taken by this virus passed without their loved ones present, unable to hold their hand, or grieve by their side. As COVID-19 continues to take more and more from us, our grief seems to grow. Please, do not become discouraged. Continue on your path, and we will prevail.”
