“As a mother and grandmother, I cannot think of a greater, more excruciating pain than the loss of a child. In times of mourning, saying goodbye to anyone is never easy, but saying goodbye to a sweet infant is truly devastating,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Jeff, Josh and I offer our heartfelt sympathies and prayers for all those who have lost loved ones and that our community be ever mindful that this horrible disease touches us all, especially the most vulnerable and defenseless.”
