|Ever since I first saw Stand By Me with River
in it, he totally reached out to me.
He was a person,
that even in a character's role,
he could touch someone else.
And not everyone can do that.
I was born the year he died
so I never got to see him in all his glory.
But I sure wish he was still here.
I could always understand
what he was getting at.
