Not sure what to say?

To Juan's family, I just read the news in Penn's Gazette. I was in several classes as we shared same majors. He was known as smart, kind, and a beacon of happiness at Penn. I am sorry that you have suffered this very sad loss. He was and is an inspiration how to face challenges with grace. May the Lord wrap you in His consolation and love.

You will be missed dear friend.

Juan was a great friend and a wonderful man. I miss him.

Juan was a wonderful man, who brought a smile to the face of every person he met. I will miss him.

My condolences to the Briones family. It did not surprise me to read how involved Juan was in various organizations during his adulthood. He was a passionate and energetic classmate as well. May you find comfort knowing that he will be remembered.
