|River Phoenix was an inspirational actor.|
His tragic death took the hearts of many,
and of those, no one will forget.
How great River was at his job,
and how I know how much he loved his family.
His death will be mourned for many more years,
but the most remembered - how he died.
A great learning experience for all,
but a most tragic way of getting that message.
May River Phoenix look down upon us all in admiration,
for he inspired us and won our hearts,
and his memory never to be forgotten.
We love you River!!
