"One day a long time ago, Sgt. Vargas received a boat from I believe one of his relatives.  He worked and worked on that boat.  He called me and told me that he was ready to take the boat out in the ocean.  We went to the boat dock and released the boat.  Sgt Vargas attempted time and time to crank the boat, meanwhile the wind blew us out into the ocean.  Next thing we knew we were miles out in the ocean.  Sgt. Vargas and I took turns swimming the boat back to land using a rope.  This was so funny to the both of us.  Forever Missed by me.  My buddy Sgt Vargas"

"My dearest brother, You are truly missed. There isn't a night that goes by and I don't shed a tear just missing you and longing to hear your voice. I hope you hear me as I talk to you each and every day. I know you are here with me. I want to thank you for being  the man that you were. You never left my side even though I was lost and I want to truly Thank You For that!! You would be so proud of the accomplishments that I have achieved. God is so good to me Rick. Till we meet again, I will look forward to seeing you in my dreams. Rest in peace. I truly Love and Miss You Enrique. God Bless You! Tell Dad I said I Love him. From Your Twin Ana."

"Dearest brother there are no words to describe the pain I'm feeling even after a year since we lost you. Time is meant to heal but doesn't seem so. This world is changing Rick and you would've been disgusted with the path that this great nation is taking. I miss discussing politics with you. You are in a better place big bro! Love and miss you dearly!"

"My dearest brother I'm crying as I write this message. Words cannot begin to describe how much I miss you.

"Words cannot begin to express the heartfelt sadness upon knowing of your passing. Though I know that you are in a better place, you are surely missed here on earth. As the bible says:  John 11:23  Jesus said to her, Thy brother shall rise again.  Psalm 23:4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and staff comfort me."

"I want to be honest with you Papa,  it's really hard for me to think about you being gone from this world forever, I know that one day we will see each other again on the other side.  But it's still hard for me to think about you being gone, I will always remember the good times that we had. You will always be in my mind and heart forever. I love you very much and I look forward to being able to see you again on the other side"

"Hi Rick. God bless you. What do I say to the man that has always been in my life from birth till the lord asked you to join him in paradise. You have never left my side through thick and thin and up and downs. We have shared the best times of our lives together. You have a part of my heart as I have a part of yours. Being a twin sister to you has been not only an honor but a privelege and pleasure. Being a twin was and always will be  a part of my life that will go on forever till we meet again. Enrique thank you for being you a good man a caring man a proud man.  My God I praise thee in all your glory Hallelujah Enrique has come home to your glory and I thank thee and praise thee. Enrique I am empty without you. But my God has filled that void with admiration for you, and our love is stronger than ever. You will forever be in my heart , thoughts and prayers. I love you my twin brother and God bless you Enrique. Good bye for now till we meet again."

"There are really no words to describe my brother Enrique Vargas. You had to LIVE the life with him and I was very fortunate that I had the opportunity to do so. Close and from a distance, our relationship from High School, the Marines and before he passed consisted of a lot. His last word to me in a text was "promise". Two days before he passed. I will keep him to that promise as I would have and have no doubt that my brother will CSMO my ass outta this world at TLZ Falcon. We haven't lost only a brother, a father, a friend...The world lost an icon. This Marine will confess to that. So I say SEMPER FI my brother...we will meet again. But not yet.

"I do not wish to say goodbye to you but see you later. I want to celebrate the beautiful life you lived filled with laughter and joy. You always had a smile on your face and were always joking around and that is how I wish to remember you. You truly were a good man and for that you will be forever respected, family or not. I love you forever Tio and you will be deeply, deeply missed by us all. Until we meet again..."

"Sgt. Vargas,  you are truly one of the most professional person I ever met.  You were attention to detail.  I really enjoyed talking to you about old times.  I will never forget the day in 1988 when we showed up to run the Marine Corps Marathon.  Everyone thought we where crazy attempting to run the marathon in boots and Utes, Lbe, and carrying a rubber rifle.  They told us we are going to be picking up y'all's stuff all day.  We didn't loose a thing and we finished the marathon thanks to your motivation.  Semper Fi my buddy.  Go rest high on the mountain."

"My dear brother, ever since your passing I have felt a void in my heart. I didn't get a chance to see you when you made your journey to New York. I cry in the thought that I didn't get to visit you in Puerto Rico nor hug you when you were here. I miss you dearly and no amount of words can begin to describe the heartache I am experiencing. I can only take comfort that you are in a better place and are no longer in pain or suffering. I Love You Big Brother! Till me meet again!"

"You will forever be in my heart, I know that you weren't about to talk with me too much on the phone, but we made up for that by texting each other almost every day for the past couple of years. I can't wait to see you again in the afterlife, I will always keep you alive in my memory. I love you so very much with all of my heart. Looks like I won't be able to visit you in Puerto Rico, but the benefit of this situation is that you won't be going through any more suffering, God bless your soul!"

""Love you little brother.. Seeing you go at the airport, I didn't realized it would be the last time otherwise I would have hug you harder, longer and probably not let you go!! You don't know the void in my heart.  How sad I feel .. I love you from the bottom of my heart and will always love you. I truly will miss you.. Thank you for All the laughter and memories we shared. Thank you for your service. Semper Fi <3" ..."
