|River was a great kid who gave to a lot of people.|
It's so tragic how he died
and how everyone's reaction was.
The first movie I ever saw with him was Stand By Me.
That had to be the best movie ever and I will
always remember River as Chris Chambers.
A leader and a friend.
I will miss River forever and even though I didn't know him
I wish that I could be with him, side by side in a movie.
Now I don't have that chance
but I can always dream what it would be like.
I know River Phoenix is happy and that's what matters.
We all love you Rio.
