Wow. What a long time, huh? All these years since
you've been gone, I can hardly believe it.
I remember when I first saw you in Stand By Me.
I was touched by your complete honesty in your acting.
As you got famous, I told everyone we were related,
because we have the same surname.
I always wished I was a part of your family.
You all seem so loving. I loved to hear
you and Rain sing together. Sometimes in the
dead of the night, when I wake up from
terrifying dreams, I can still hear you singing.
Thank you River, for all you have given to me
and people like me.
God bless you. Sleep well.
