"Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this,
it makes me feel as if I really can say goodbye.

"Flesh and Blood"

By Victor Antony Mcfarlane,
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Wow, it's been a long time River, and though I still light a candle for you, it just doesn't seem to be enough. Watching your movies helps to remember your face, but it doesn't make it easier.

I often find myself daydreaming and imagining you in the next great movie, then what seemed unreal becomes real again. I miss you so much, you were a part of me, even though you didn't know it.

I wrote a poem from a quote you once said, and I would like to leave it with you.

Because we're all just flesh and blood,
that's all no more,
and forever our souls will live,
but our bodies will rot to the core.
We are but food for worms;
filling a time and space,
doing what we must do,
then waiting for the moment
when it comes,
for us to die.
