|River's death touched the heart of millions|
including myself. He has a very special place
in my heart and always will.
He started with nothing and ended with everything
from the love of his family
to the love and respect from his fans.
He will never be forgotten in this world
and will always be there in spirit.
I hope people will follow his beliefs
and protect the animals and rain forests -
something River thought so hard for.
