Jose with da beard... Watch over us
Jose, I didn't have the pleasure of meeting you, however had the opportunity to make the acquaintance of your mother. Based on what I know of her, I can only imagine what a wonderful man you are. I say, "you are" rather than you was/were, because you're still living. You're living in the after-life with many Angels, such as my mother. Earth is just as a temporary place we call home. I look forward to the day when I meet with God face to face, Until then, thank you for the positive impact you made. Thank you for the Legacy you left. I will keep your family in prayer as they all mourn your passing. RIP my brother.
May you rest in peace in paradise. Jose you will never be forgotten. My prayers go out to your family. I still can't get over the news. You are truly missed.
Jose you will always be remembered for your great smile, and slick black hair. You had a great personality that will be missed. To his wife, family, and son, my condolences and prayers to you for strength from God.
R.I.P joseito you will never be forgotten. watch over your family, your wife and your beautiful lil' boy..
Rest in peace with the angels Jose...
my condolences goes out to the rivera family. you will forever be missed rip jose.
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU CUZZO TE VEO EN EL SIELO PRIMO ----- JORGE RIVERA --- LIL COUSIN ---
It was nice knowing you and good memories will live on forever. RIP Jose...you'll be missed. My deepest condolences to your family.
Rip Jose I would truly miss you at school, specially letting you have my notes so you can be updated lol. Even when you had a busy day you still smiled, you was a good friend and inspiring person too, you never gived up and everything you did was for your family. I can't believe you're gone but now God has a great angel que descanses en Paz...
Our condolences to the Rivera Family. Sorry for your lost, he will be missed.
Jose, you were a wonderful person inside and out. I remember us living on Queen St, right across the street from each other, (not including us graduating together)and we used to keep each other company when we both had the chance. You always had a smile on your face, and we both joked about everything in the world. Last time I spoke to you, we were catching up on our lives, and you were always on the right track. I'll miss you and your positive attitude. May God be with you and your family.
R.I.P Jose Rivera ? your in a better place now. Even though theirs a family left behind to suffer because your no longer here. You can now protect them from the heavens above... May God bless your family... You will be truly missed. ???
My condolences to the Rivera family.May God comfort you with His peace and strength.

May you rest in peace in paradise our fallen trooper, you will never be forgotten. God bless your beautiful son, wife, and family forever.
I still can't believe that this happened. you were a father figure to me and I always looked to you for advice and guidance you always knew what to say. i can still hear you calling me saying beautiful sister of mine how are you doing. this is a difficult thing to try to cope with. it saddens me that you will not get to meet your nephew. I will make sure he knows how truly amazing his uncle was. I love you so much! and I miss you so much. may you rest in peace with the angels above.
Didnt get to meet you but im sure you were an awesome person reading what was written by everyone and what was said by some of my husbands cousins which were ur cousins that you were a great person may you rip you have a strong family that will keep your spirit alive always ...... May god bless your wife and lil boy you guys are in my thoughts and prayers
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
Dificiles momentos que estan pasando la familia mis mas sentido pesame...
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Jose has indeed left a lasting impression on us all. He will never be forgotten may memories keep u all going. His spirit still lives and through his son his legacy will live on. Growing up with Jose he was always one who was determined and always had a smile on his face. Just last week in a group discussion we all including Jose were excited and ready to meet up again. (Class of 2003) Well God had other plans for Jose. Although its difficult to understand right now know that he indeed has spread his wings and is watching over all of us. To the family I pray true strength to his wife God will provide. To the friends let us keep his spirit alive and be the support system the family needs. Never Forgotten Forever Remembered..Rest On Jose
I don't think anyone could ever chose the right words in a situation like this but Joseito...no matter the distance u was my cousin and I love u dearly. My prayers will continue to go out to ur wife, son, mom,dad. Lizy and all our family (including myself) in hopes that we all find the strength to go on and deal with such a loss. You will be missed forever!
Difisil de creer un buen amigo,padre,hermano y sobre todo una gran persona.Joselito que descanses e paz y nunca seras olvidaddo mi mayor pesame a toda la familia riveras de parte de la familia Berrios,dios les bendiga.

The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Jose A. Rivera our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Jose. And to Jose it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during Operations Enduring Freedom while deployed with the U.S. Army. Jose, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Jose's family and loved ones.

Letter from Heaven
To my dearest family some things I'd like to say But first of all to let you know that I arrived ok, I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight, remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you, It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone, As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on. I need you here badly, you are part of my plan. There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man." God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do and foremost on the list was to watch and care for you and when you lie in bed at night, the days chores put to fight God and I are closest to you . . in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears, but do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand, But one thing is for certain though my life on earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before. There are many rocky roads ahead for you and many hills to climb But together we can do it by taking one day at a time. When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when it's time for you to go . . from that body to be free remember you're not going . . you're just coming here to me.
