For Agent Carlos Rivera-Vega:

All law officers are susceptible to sudden attack by deranged, angry, worthless and vengeful low-life individuals. None, though, more than the drug-agent whose duty it is to infiltrate, investigate, and walk among the vermin that perpetuate the pernicious dealing of drugs that brings endless misery to others and their families everywhere. We regret that Carlos would be the next drug-agent to die devoting his life to making the world a better place for others. The coward striking-out at Carlos, as usually happens, chose to take his own life rather than face world afterward. His journey to hell thus now not delayed.
We pray for Carlos' family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him.
We are proud to render Agent Carlos Rivera-Vegas, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza, (Ret.)

My hear breaks for Agent Rivera-Vega, his family, brothers and sisters in blue, and the entire Puerto Rico community. He was a true hero and will never be forgotten. To the family, please lean on your LE family, as they will be your strength from here on out. I lost my 29 year old son and love of my life, Officer Casey Kohlmeier & his K-9 Draco, in the line of duty when a drunk driver killed them 3 months ago, on October 30, 2013, in Pontiac, IL, and I could not make it without their continued love and support of my family. Every day is a new challenge, and I will be honest with you, it still feels like yesterday. Everyone says the pain will be easier to bear in the days and years ahead, and tho it has only softened a bit, the LE community and COPS organization have been godsends to us. I will pray for you all to get through this with us and give us strength for each new day. God bless you all.

- “Tenemos que entender que la vida es un proceso con un inicio y un fin y que una estación de esta ruta es la muerte, hoy él está en el cielo con Dios”
- “La vida se encargó que se distancie de nosotros, de ahora en adelante él estará atento a lo que hagamos, nos cuidará y velará nuestra conducta cada segundo.
- “Cuando compartió la vida a nuestro lado su vida fue un ejemplo a seguir, su conducta y su estilo de enfrentamiento de la vida tiene que convertirse en nuestro ideal de vida”
- “Tengo la certeza que todo lo que están llorando es por la pena que te ha venido por su muerte, igual te tengo que decir que ahora está en un mejor sitio”
- “En el momento que una persona se va para siempre de nuestras vidas el alma sufre hasta no poder resistirlo, tenemos que entender que la muerte es parte de todo y el dolor se irá dejando atrás cuando el tiempo vaya pasando.
- “Estoy segura que están sufriendo mucho porque él murió y era muy amado, has una ofrenda para él con tu vida siendo honesto y en armonía con los que te rodean. Descansa en Paz. Carlos Alberto Rivera Vega.Gracias por Todo. Nasha,Fanny y Jeyden su Papá siempre los estará cuidando desde el Cielo.
