I absolutely adore River. I don't just love the movies he has starred in but him as a person. I feel like he was an amazing actor and overall incredible human being. He could act, remain grounded to his upbringing and fam, and connect with animals; the full package. I was introduced to River as a kid by watching Stand by Me but I didn't think much of it. Now, as I'm older, I rediscovered him by watching the movie in English class and I fell in love with him again. It started with that to watching all his other movies, reading/watching interviews, surfing him up online to developing a slight obsession with Rio I was devastated to find out he died so young and I constantly think where he would be now if he survived that night. But my problem is, I'm a teen who wasn't even alive when he was. It saddens me deeply. I know i will never fully appreciate River as much as others on this site who have been with him while he was alive but I can't help loving him! Is this normal and should I continue to admire him? Or should I stop because I'm too young?
Please help

You're normal! I'm 19, so I never got to experience River while he was alive. I found out about him when I was 12, when I watched Stand By Me. I was so upset when I found out he had died. He has been a huge influence in my life,and I am very grateful for that. I think you should continue to admire him, there's nothing wrong with that. He was a wonderful, caring, and beautiful person.

Just think of it this way..

Do you like Johnny Depp? Keanu Reeves? Brad Pitt?
River was 6 years younger than all of them.
Would you expect anyone your age to stop admiring those guys because they're 'too young'?

There are kids your age who worship Kurt Cobain, John Lennon and others who were also departed before you got the chance to be around.

Somebodies work enables them to live in a way long after they've ceased to be. And anyway, if anything- you're every growing interest in River will automatically lead you to discovering other creative people who are still around and still going. That's the major plus with him- he knew all sorts of very gifted, cool people with interesting things to say because he was one.
You are entitled to connect with whoever speaks to you.

River himself loved Jimi Hendrix, who died when he was only a few weeks old. And he identified very strongly, and apparently developed something of an obsession with a poet who died 80 YEARS before he was born. Not so much his work, but his life and person.
We are all guilty- It's the human condition

Hi there,
I think you are absolutely great. It speaks for itself, actually, that something really good is happening to you. In our time where everything is so shallow, so superficial , it`s great to find people who appreciate people like River. Who see the importance of caring for each other, the planet including all animals etc...Be proud of yourself. I think you belong to dying species...if I may say...
Bye the way, I grew up in the 80`s, so am I too old to love him? I don`t think so and I don`t care. I still find him attractive and like you adore his personality ( and I still wear T-Shirts with his picture and actually have just bought a bracelet...)

Have a great weekend.
Caroline
