“No words can ever heal the pain from losing a loved one, Jeff, Lt. Gov. Josh, and I send his family and friends our condolences and sympathies,” said Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. “Throughout this pandemic, we have had to do our part to keep each other safe. If we become complacent, if we falter in our resolve, the price of this virus will be higher than we can ever pay.”
