|The first movie I watched of yours was|
Stand By Me when I was 10,
not realizing who you were at the time,
I thought what a natural, your acting was brilliant,
until later when I discovered who you were
through magazines and watching your films etc...
What I'm trying to say is I really loved you
and still do, so young I ask myself "why"
wondering how much more you were going to do,
whether you would have released a single
or continuously staring in more movies.
I guess I'll never know.
You really were one true character and very inspirable
to many people and especially your family
who have followed your footsteps into acting.
I'll miss you.
