|Tal vez nuestros espíritus se reunirá de nuevo cuando se termina mi viaje.|
This page was created to honor my friend, Pedro Vargas whom we all knew as Pete.
I met him in February, 1998. We worked side by side, every day from 2010 until the end of our tour of duty on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013.
During his memorial, the celebrant said that at the end of life, there are usually two regrets. They're not that we didn't go to work more or earn more money. They are...
Love inadequately expressed
Forgiveness not sought or extended.
The celebrant must have been speaking about us in this case as it would have been impossible for Pete to have known these regrets. He loved his life, wife, his family and friends well. He was kind, sincere and compassionate. Anyone can know Pete. Imagine a happy boyscout in the form of a man. It's really just that simple.
The loss of my young friend is indeed a bitter pill. It goes down a little easier because I've been fortunate enough to have shared a small part of life with such a giant of a man.
I give him a standing ovation for a job done well...a life very well lived!
Thank you for visiting here.
"Happy birthday, Pedro."

"Epitaph On A Friend - Robert Burns
An honest man here lies at rest,
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so inform'd;
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
