River

It's been 16 long years since one of the world's brightest stars faded.  He was my original bad boy crush.  His face covered the walls of my room.  I remember sitting in the locker room of my high school after 2nd hour Phy Ed when I heard the news.  I cried.

River Phoenix...  Gone but never forgotten...

Has it really been 16 years? O.M.G :( He was my first bad boy crush too, he also plastered the walls of my bedroom as a teen, and I also cried when I found out he died.

My sons middle name is River, and my daughters middle name is Phoenix. He's gone, but never forgotten!

LOL I was always going to go to Hollywood one day and make him fall in love with me *sigh*

Can't believe it's been that long. He really was adorable and talented. So sad and such a waste .....

I always liked him too. It was such a shame. I can't believe it's been 16 years. Wow.

Loved Stand By Me... sad indeed. I did not have a similar crush, though. Nice blog!

Okay, so YES it has taken me this long to comment on your blog. *sigh* Sorry.

But you got me with the River Phoenix thing. Yep. He was my one high school celebrity crush, too. Was sad when he died.
