The stepmother of former Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro and his twin brother, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, has died from coronavirus, the Texas congressman announced on Twitter late Thursday.
He described Guzman as a "warm, loving person" whom the family will miss "incredibly." The post also included a photo of Guzman posing with the congressman's daughter.
"My heart goes out to the families who've lost loved ones to this terrible illness," he added.
Minutes later, Julián Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development secretary who ended his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in January, replied, "May she rest in peace."
No further details about Guzman were immediately available.
