|When I first heard of River,|
I saw him in Stand By Me.
I thought he was great.
I was probably around 10 or 11
when I first saw it.
I quickly became a fan of what he did
as a person for what he believed in.
When I heard of his death
on that Halloween night almost 5 years ago,
I could only feel a hole in my heart
for his family, friends
and those who loved him dearly.
He will always have a place in my heart.
I will continue to love what he did
for the short time he was with us.
