Hi, everybody!

Today in River's birthday I have some great news to share.

Ever since March this year, in anunexpected way, I got to know that a friend of mine, Brazilian singer, producer, Lizzie Bravo met River many times in the early 90s .
Lizzie was then working as an assistant to Milton Nascimento (Brazilian singer who wrote a song to River and became friends with him)who is also her longtime and personal friend.
After I learned this I insisted that Lizzie would tell her history of the times she saw River (she was present in all the times River and Milton met) and share some of her fondest memories and photos with us. She agreed and along with my friend moderator of River Phoenix Brazil website, we prepared an article both in English and Portuguese telling this story and publishing her photos for the 1st time. Just to make clear: No gossip, no tabloid-stories", only sweet memories and nice things that DESERVE to be told.

Please, let us know to whom we should send the history and the pictures in English, so (real) fans of River can all have access to this. I think it's fair, considering things like this bring him closer to us somehow!

As it is a strictly private and personal history, Lizzie has never published anything about this before, nor spread around the world that she met River Phoenix. Lizzie gently accepted our request to share her memories with us which left us immensely grateful and excited. After all, to have access to brand new - and fun - stories about River Phoenix almost 20 years after his passing, is a truly a gift to all of us, fans of his remarkable artist.
I really want the other fans to have access to this all, so please, get in touch with me
My emails are: aline.sodre@emdoc.com or aline_mccartney@yahoo.com
Thank you and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RIVER!!

Hi, guys,

You can have access to the story by accessing this website : http://riverphoenixforever.blogspot.com.br/2012/08/o-river-phoenix-que-eu-conheci-relato.html

Scroll down for English version, we posted both versions and we kept the pictures at their originals size, because they are so great, that we felt guilty for trying to adapt their size to adjust the website, so that?s why they?re a bit disproportional, but, it was on purpose ?
Enjoy the story!

P S: Barry I?m sending you the original story and the pictures!!!

Ok, I just posted about Dark Blood's premiere being a gift to River's fans.. but wow, another wonderful gift you have here for us. And for this to coincide with his birthday... just wonderful! Thank you so much!!!

Do you have an english version though? I'm a moderator on the forum but we rarely ever see from the webmaster himself. I believe Hel has his email. Maybe she will drop in some time soon.

The good news are: Lizzie has many other photos, and when she's got the time, she'll make sure to share them with us
