|I first saw River Phoenix in the movie Stand By Me.|
I loved the way he acted and wanted to know
more about him.
Now, I know almost everything I can about him
and I want to learn more.
I just wish that he could be here today
to show the world that there are people alive
that are perfect.
But his gift to the world still lives on
in many of our hearts.
Thank you River for all you've given us.
