I'm writing, like many other people, to let you know I think your tribute site is the best. I was 13 when River Phoenix died and for some reason it had a huge impact on me.
I understand when I was younger I hyped up the Phoenix Family, but these days I see them as people who have changed my attitudes towards animals, pollution, and have also helped me realise what's important to me. It's amazing what people you've never met can do for you.
I guess the reason I'm telling you this is because it's probably the closest I will get to saying "thank you" to them.
In her letter Heart wrote "if River's passing opens our global hearts, then thank you dear son for another gift to us all...." and what she said there is true. I appreciate life much more than I ever have and I am doing my very best to help animals and also to protect trees. I've supported a lot of protests around my area because people are continuing to cut down trees and build roads....
I understand you're busy so I'll just say thanks for reading this and I hope I can
tell them in person one day.
Be safe and happy.
