My condolence to your agencies personnel as well as the friends and family members who share in the loss of Carlos Rivera-Vega. Losing our partners, friends and family members is never easy and often leave periods of sorrow and lonliness. Thats what love does. It's never easy, however, moreso than other times, it makes us reflect and reminiss on all the good times we had with our lost ones.
If I may, I would like to share a quote followed by a distant toast to our fallen brother, our son, father, husband and most certainly a friend to all, our friend Carlos. I raise my glass to you Agent Rivera-Vega

"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure"

We often associate treasure with wealth. Brother Carlos, thank you for making all of us wealthier people based on the memories we get to treasure.

Thank you for your service

May GOD BLESS you and your family and your friends.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

Quisiera expresar lo mucho que siento por su perdida. Yo no conocia personalmente al Agente Rivera pero duele cuando uno de mis hermanos en arma se ha hido. Llevo 10 años en el Ejercito de EEUU y realizo el mismo trabajo que el Agente Rivera. Yo soy de Cayey, pero estoy estacionado en Alemania.

A la familia, porfavor dejanlos saber que lo siento mucho y estare pensando en ellos.
