|River has taught me what is important in life.|
He taught me not to let go what I believe.
Through his short life he has shown me to be happy.
Like the book, The Little Prince,
River could not be tamed, but still each and
everyone of us holds a special piece of River.
I want to thank River for teaching me,
and promise to him that we, all his fans,
will keep his dreams alive.
Thank you River for opening my eyes. We miss you.
