|A beautiful bird, flying free now.|
There are, I believe, some souls who are
simply too good for this world.
I believe River was such a soul. Too caring.
Too aware. Too sensitive. Too genuine.
Too compassionate to exist very long
in this brutal world we live in.
He was an angel here to do good works,
touch souls, broaden minds, and open hearts.
So now we celebrate his gifts so freely given,
and hold his goodness in memory close to our hearts.
