|I wish with every ounce of my being|
that I could have known River.
He was beautiful and kind, sensitive and loving,
wise beyond his years; he was a free spirit
and a magical mixture of vitality and simplicity.
His effect on my life was profound
and his death will always horrify and mystify me.
What a loss to this precarious world!
Yet he is truly the "river of life"
and his presence is eternal.
