River Phoenix was my teen idol. There was something about seeing him on screen that really drew me in. He was so beautiful. He was mesmerizing. He was REAL. I really love seeing that young people look up to him even though some were not born til after he passed away, it’s a true testament to the legacy he left this earth. I will never forget the moment I found out he was no longer with us. My heart sank and I immediately started crying. We lost a TRUELY remarkable soul that day. Today I want to celebrate his life. We miss you River!
"River was this beautiful golden boy with floppy golden hair, the James Dean look-alike, the risk-taker, the indie musician, the environmentalist, the vegan, the Oscar-nominated talent, the badass with the cool name and the big heart. Above all, he had potential. He seemed to combine so much of the past, along with elements of a future we were just getting around to thinking about."
