|Happy Birthday River.
You've changed my life in more ways
than anyone ever has.
You've taught me more than my own parents.
You've shown me trust, ambition, dedication,
strength, and honesty.
I now stand here a different person.
A person who followed your every word
and believed in them.
You gave me something to look forward to.
You gave meaning to life.
I cherish everything you are.
I support your every action.
I adore everything you've made of me.
And I love how it was all inspired by you.
You mean so much to me.
I love you.
