Stand by Me is my favorite because it was the first movie I’d ever seen him in. I remember seeing that movie in the seventh grade which was a long time ago (lol), so I guess you can say I’ve been a fan for a pretty long time now.

It happens sometimes. Friends come in and out of our lives, like busboys in a restaurant.

Last week I watched it again, and I search in the net some informations about River and the other guys. When I saw that River was dead I was shocked. So I began to watch all his films. Now I really love him and I often cry for his death. I just want to say thank you because your blog is very nice and there are a lot of wonderful River's pictures

Don’t cry! I’m sure he’s in a much better place. And no, thank you for enjoying this blog!
