|Essentially River and I grew up together.|
Even though we never met,
never even made eye contact.
I saw in him love and honesty and sincere compassion.
I miss him being there. On screen.... Alive....
He was so vibrant an actor - you could feel each
emotion that passed through his character's body.
There has never and never will be another actor
with the talent that this soul possessed.
River, I will forever miss your inner and outer beauty.
And my heart will forever hold you in it.
I love you still....
