Robert Ragin, from Lake Worth, FL, hopes the sad loss of local sheriff’s sergeant Jose Diaz Ayala will be a reminder to everyone of how serious the coronavirus is, and how selflessly essential workers are putting themselves on the line every day to protect their communities.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Sergeant Jose Diaz Ayala who was 38 years old unfortunately passed away due to the COVID-19. He served his department for over 13 years and it’s really sad to see his life cut short. He was a father, brother, and son who will be truly missed by a lot of people. This virus is extremely dangerous and I’ll advise everyone to take this seriously.
