|River was such an amazing actor and friend of the environment.|
Many continue to watch his movies
and are overwhelmed by the mystique,
beauty, and greatness of his work.
I'm taken aback whenever I see his movies
even if its the 10th or 15th time.
Like many loyal fans I believe
the portrayal of Chris Chambers in Stand By Me
immortalized his acting legacy.
I greatly admired him for his kindness
and the personal power to remain so humble,
and his respect to Mother Earth
along with his whole family.
He left a mark on everybody who has seen his work
or even a picture of him.
River you are greatly missed,
but will never be forgotten.
Deepest regret you had to be taken so soon.
