|He was an angel personified.|
River gave so much happiness to so many people.
It was almost inevitable that such a wonder
would come to an end so soon.
I loved him with all my heart.
I was but a child when I saw in one of his films,
now I am a woman and still love him.
His beauty can never be forgotten,
he is forever in our hearts,
staring down from heaven
with his clear angelic eyes.
How such a person could die so tragically
will forever be a mystery, it was such a waste.
I will love him always,
