|I never thought someone I had never met before|
could have such a profound impact on my life.
River, thank you for the wisdom
you impressed upon me.
Thank you for embracing the world
with the puriest of loves but most importantly
thank you for showing me that one person
can make the world a beautiful place.
An old soul in a young body. Gone but never forgotten.
