I am trying to get mom to move this way, this is where her family is!! I wish dad could come as well but you know dad and snow,they don't mix, lol.

Lil phile I miss you so much. Until we meet again I will hold you near, I love you lil brother!!"

"Just thinking of you my sweet cousin. I think and talk to you in my prayers almost every day. I love & miss you ALWAYS. Well, my book is nearly done, and it will be available on Amazon soon. I did write about our encounter when I was in the hospital. I wish you were here to share this new adventure in my life. Well, there is nothing more to say. I am so very lucky to had you in my life and still have you in my heart and soul. See you soon my beautiful cousin/brother. (I am STILL MAD you are gone and hurting to where tears are trying hard to come down my face but I am fighting it big time. My heart is beating hard and it hurts because I miss you. I don't need any holidays to remember you, for  you are ALWAYS with me)"

"Hey coach. I know I haven't really ever left anything here, but I never knew what to say. Everyone always says you were a great coach, and they're right. To this day you have been one of the best educators I've ever had. You didn't just teach me about exercise, you taught me about respect, pride, and when I needed advice, you helped. I remember you always told me to do Dual Enrollment. Well, now it's my second semester in the program, and you're part of my motivation to keep going. I'll never forget the last time I saw you. It was the day before you passed, you shook my hand and smiled at me when we said goodbye. Everyone always said it would get easier with time, but it really never did. I still miss you a bunch, coach. But I know you're in a great place. Rest easy, Coach Vicens. You're the best. I hope all of us (your old students) make you proud."

"My sweet cousin.. It's been a rough few couple of weeks. I had major surgery and you know I was scared. I chatted with you the day before and of asking you to be there if it's my turn to go. You are so much apart my heart and soul and chatting with you almost every day helps me stay strong,  and positive. I am in the process of writing a book and included the part when you called out my name, smiled, and waived at me. The part that gave me strength, determination, and a sense of a stronger faith. I miss you so much. Talking to you every other day is nothing compared to actually speaking to you person to person.  I did try to reach out to Melanie to ask a few questions but she never responded. I respect her and left it alone. I just wanted to do something special for you from me to you and get updated info on your life at the time of your passing. I only have childhood memories, and when we were young adults years ago. No matter what, I will honor you not only in my heart and soul but will do something special. Once I heal, and I am ready to travel, I have plans on coming to your town in Lakeland, Fl and your school, and get a feel for you. I do feel you always but I need to witness the positive effect you had on your friends, students, and co workers. Looking forward to hear their great stories and experiences with you. You mattered so much" you made a difference, and changed lives to the better. God had a purpose for you in this world and you achieved it. I am so proud of you and honored to have you in my life, my heart, soul, and memories.  Hey! Thanks for looking out for my baby as always you are his guardian angel and a great role model. I love you"

"My wife, just today, noticed I have both of my ears pierced. She started playing with my earlobes, then asked how long I had them both pierced. It made me think back to when I did them. Then I remembered it was Felix who pierced my right ear. It was our sophomore year at Robinson High School. It was near Christmas and we decided right before the school break that when we returned to school in January we would have our right ears pierced. George Michael (Wham) was still a big deal, and Boy George was still on the radio, but both were considered radical for having their right ear pierced. So we thought we were really doing something about accomplishing this.

This was my Fe-Dawg Vicens moment! I miss that dude! I will continue to pray for him and his family.

"I just wanted to drop in and tell you that I love you and miss you. This so unreal to me. You was so young and so loved by many. Here is a little something that I found today and hope you enjoy this as much as I did. No one know my feelings about things.   “We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.”

― John Lennon  So very true in what this is saying. My heart aches so much but I know one day some I will see you. I love you my sweet baby boy. I could go tomorrow and I am ready to say goodbye to this world."

"Hey Coach Vicens, it's Donald. 3 years have passes since you had to go, and it doesn't get any easier as time goes on. I know you've seen me make my mistakes, screwing things up for myself, and I know it seems like I've forgotten everything you've taught me, but I haven't, nor have I forgotten you. You were a dad to me all throughout Middle School, and even though we didn't always see eye to eye on everything, you were always there for me, and I wish I got the chance to say thank you earlier. I guess no time is better than the present, so here it is: Thank you Coach V, for teaching me what it means to have respect for my peers and for others, for teaching me what it means to live life, what it means to want to pursue a goal. I could go on but I'm sure there's a character limit somewhere, but just know (and I know you do) that I could not have asked for a better pair of coaches (Yourself and Coach McCardle) to teach me the ways of life. I went from a scrawny middle school loser to a built IB Junior with a future, and I couldn't have asked for anything more than what you two have provided for me.

Thank you Coach Felix Eloy Vicens, I hope your living life up there. We love you Coach! Jags On Three!!"

"My Loving Son My Heart breaks every day. I know there was times we did not see eye to eye but that does not mean I stop loving you. I sit and remember so many things about you. I am so hurt that who ever knew this never gave me a call or a note. You know my temper and yes I will keep going until the day I find the answers to my questions. As far a your that girl you call a girlfriend I do not worry about her because Karma will come around. I Just miss you so very much. I will never forget the day they brought you in the room and said here is you baby boy. Your Aunt Flo was there and she cried because you was so beautiful and so perfect. Your Father was so happy to have a baby boy who looked like him. You have touched many hearts and I love you today as the day you was born.I cry for you, my heart aches, my soul is broken. I love you and looking forward to seeing you again. Love you MY LOVING SON."

"It's 5:50am my sweet cousin and today marks 3 years you are gone. Time goes by but you live on forever in my heart and soul. I talk to you all the time in prayer or just any ocassion. I miss you so much and miss that smile. I still have this paper that I wrote down your address, phone number and email. I want to write and call you but I can't.  It still hurts a lot, and I carry you with me always. I promise my kids will know all about you and learn how great you were and maybe carry a little of you in them. I can sit here and  still remember your birthday parties, or Christmases since it's in the same month. So much I remember and don't want to ever forget. Please come back to me, even in a dream as you did in the past. I would like to just sit down and chat with you, have you listen or just give me that big smile. You are my best cousin/brother and I truly hurt, miss, and love you. Thank you for being with me and remaining in my heart and soul. Until next time, see you later. I love you"

"I am always thinking of you and talking to you in my prayers everyday. I love and miss you so my my dear cousin. I am still trying to find out what caused your death. I cannot be at peace until I find out the truth. I noticed that your mom just found out. I sent her a message. I looked all over for her in the internet but the last time I heard from her I was 10 years old. Your anniversary is near and I can't handle it. I still am angry you are gone. Sometimes I feel that it should of been me instead of you. You are my baby's guardian angel and I am doing all I can to keep your memory alive. If anyone knows more info to share please let me know. You are my cousin, my brother, and friend. I cry for you, my heart aches, my soul is broken. I love you and looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you for smiling and waving at me, when I heard you say NOEMI... I felt your love and peace...but then you disappeared in an instant.

"Not a day goes by I go without missing you. I talk to you mostly every night. I am still angry you are gone. Yet, I have designated you the job of guardian angel to my youngest Lucas. When I think of you I remember our childhood years, your birthday parties, the times we played in the back yard on that homemade tire swing you had. I also remember when as teens, we would speak of our dreams. Your smile, your strength, your determination, and positive attitude always left a mark in my heart. When I was in a coma, I saw you, you called out my name and waved, I didn't know you were gone until months later. I cry and hurt for you. When I think of the times I planned on coming out to visit you but things happened which never allowed it to happen. You are my cousin, my buddy, my heart and soul. I love you forever. Thank you for being YOU, and for being apart of my life. I MISS YOU!!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!! I WANT YOU BACK HERE, I WANT TO SEE YOU SMILE AND JUST SIT NEXT TO YOU!!!! I AM SO SORRY YOU ARE GONE!!! TALK TO YOU SOON."

"Coach V. was an amazing man. I only knew him a couple of months ,  but it took me only a week to realize that he was a great,  humble man. He wasn't like much other coaches , he understood us . He treated us like men, not boys. He would joke around with us a lot. He would talk to us like on of his friends. He would always say something that would make my day, or make me happy in general. Coach V was awesome. God took him,  but his lessons are being taught to the angels ,  where they belong,  he is making heaven even better. He is seated at the right hand of The Lord. He is making the angels smile, and he is making God realize he took an amazing man. Coach is watching over us, all of us, keep that in mind when you would do something bad. Think to yourself 'What would Coach V think of me?'. God has given and taken a gift from us, yet put it in a better place.  JagsOn3 VTheBest"

"Felix was the coolest, sharpest, most quietly intelligent, fun-loving colleague I ever had.  He was the kind of teacher who gets kids to do amazing things - without making them think they're hauling sandbags up an endless hill.  He found the "wow" in everything.  I'm shocked that he's gone and am befuddled by it.  I can still see that smile, that chuckle, that ease with which he took on any challenge.  He will be missed."

"Coach... You were everyone's best friend. You made us happy even when we were sad or going through middle school drama. But most of all you made a difference in all of our lives you've taught us how to take care of our body and not to Cheat ourselves. You will always be in our hearts coach.

Win with pride Lose with pride
Don't take my kindness for weakness
You all have the ability to change the world but you need to do something.
                                 -- Coach V."

""Don't Grieve For Me"

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

"When I think of Felix, I think of joy. The joy of being with him. The joy of his smile. The joy of his kindness. The joy of his acceptance. The joy of his laugh. The joy of his jokes. The joy of his hugs. The joy of his being. But most importantly, the joy he brings to my heart. I'm so saddened by the loss of this incredible man, but I want to celebrate his life.  When I whisper his name, or remember his smile, or remember a funny joke he told me, or remember his laugh, I will celebrate his gift of joy and keep his memory close to my heart. With my joy he will live on forever."

"I'm just blown away, don't know what to say, this is one of the saddest times I've ever experience.  Don't understand why you left us so soon...13 years of memories, fun times at work, you always brighten up my day when you walk thru the door, even in sad times you made me laugh!!  My sadness is more so because I thought about you on so many occasions and just this past Tuesday and did nothing to let you know! :'(  Now I wish I could get another chance just to say hey...but You know you'll always be my buddy, and I will remember you always!! Love you my friend..."

"I remember being on the courts playing b-ball. Great skills and spin moves were sick. Us all hanging and kicking it tough back then! Wow! This is crazy!  I know God has special place for you in heaven for my boy! You were and are, that special type of soul that people connected totally with. That souI that will never be forgotten by me or anyone that came in contact with you. I know we lost touch after high school. As alot of us go our way. But no matter what you were always family. And forever have a place  connected like brothers. News like this is not easy for us that know you. I pray that God heals those that shed tears (family, girlfriend, friends). May you Rest in Peace Fe! Until we meet again bro."

"I feel like my childhood just got rocked! Felix, you've left an indelible mark on me. There isn't enough time in existence to erase the affect you've had on me. Many seek relevance in their life experiences to establish a value in who they are and what they hope to become, but Felix, you're the kind of guy one just wanted to be like from first experience. Too much time passed since the last time I shook your hand; laughed at your wit; and told you what a great guy you are and have always been. I knew I'd have the opportunity to do so some day soon. My regret isn't that I didn't get to say goodbye; rather, I failed to just say hi. Life seems fragile now! You were taken too soon!!! May Allah be pleased with you."
