My heart goes out to Daniel and his family. I too am from Peru, and have family there, who heard the news and informed me that all Peruvians are greiving for the loss of one of our own (along with the rest of the other students of course) who was trying to better himself here in the states. Again, love and support to those who have been lost in the terrible incident.

There is no words that can express the sorrow, the pain for these kind of things to happen. Coming to this country for a better life, full of dreams and working hard to making them happy and finding tragedy in the way. My sincere condolences to Daniel's mother,family and friends.

As a recent former college student, it deeply saddens me to hear about the tragic events of April 16th. So many young men and women struggling to improve their lives and their communities were taken away from us. My prayers and best wishes go to the friends and families of the victims.

Time, a year

Mi más sentidas condolencias a la familia de Daniel Perez. Yo soy peruana y vivo en Northern Virginia y me siento orgullosa de saber que un peruano, Daniel, haya alcanzado éxitos y altos logros durante su corta vida. Soy madre de un muchacho de 20 y una muchacha de 24, y sólo puedo imaginar el dolor que Uds. deben sentir por su falta. Tuvieron un hijo maravilloso, un hijo ideal, que está con el Señor ahora descansando en paz. Tenemos que recordar que los hijos son de Dios y que nacen a través de nosotros. Que Dios los bendiga.

Wow, so close to home.I lived there as well but I went to forest park and peruvian as well. Always passed hylton on my way to work at potomac mills. My thoughts and prayers go out to you bro and your family.

My heart and prayers are with you. May your son,brother Daniel perez cueva rest in eternal peace.

I did not know Mr. Perez, however, I think he was a most beautiful human being. I was really touched that he had saved his money and at 18 pursued the idea and ultimately achieved his goal of purchasing a residence for his mother; that he was attending VT full time but continued working to help support his family financially. He was a loving, good and caring human being. My deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers to his family.
