I'm only a recent addition to the throng of
mourning fanatics as I only saw "Stand By Me"
a little over a month ago.
But I was addicted from then on.
Your skill, talent and grace struck a chord
deep within my soul and I have made every effort
to learn about the most pure actor to ever
appear in motion picture.
In the space of a month,
I've managed to see five more masterpieces,
but it is finite.
I despair at the fact that I can see
every River Phoenix film ever made because...
You are my idol River.
Rest in Peace River,
You are forever in our hearts.
