R.I.P. John Hughes

I was so sad when I heard the news yesterday. John Hughes, 59 years old, passed away in New York from a heart attack.

Like many of you, I grew up watching his movies. Whether he wrote or directed them, they are classics in my mind.

Sixteen Candles
The Breakfast Club
Pretty in Pink
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Some Kind of Wonderful

When I think of those movies, I think of 80's music, The Brat Pack, and amazing scenes/quotes. It's so sad he is gone.

You forgot to mention the Home Alone movies. Tear.
