25 Years Without River
I can't believe it's been 25 years since that horrible morning when I was told River had passed away. I was 17 at the time..... and to say I was heartbroken is an understatement..... I was devastated. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about him in some way. No, I didn't know him, and I never would have - but he touched my life in such a profound way, from such an early age - I find myself remembering him in the same way as relatives or friends who have passed.
When I think of all he could have done in the last 25 years, it makes me sad. I don't know if he would still be 'in the business'....... Maybe by now, he would have turned to full time humanitarianism? - No one will ever know, as he was taken far too early.
I do know one thing for sure....... If anyone wants to know the definition of an angel - all you have to do is think of River, because if angels are real, (which I truly believe,) then River is definitely one of them.
To River's family, friends and loved ones - My heart and thoughts are with you all. We, as fans may miss him, but it's nothing compared to what you must feel.
