A Sad Farewell

So, I am utterly saddened by the passing of John Hughes. I guess it didn't occur to me that he could die. I kind of thought he'd live forever.

With him passes just a bit of my youth.

He's the man who gave us Jake Ryan (which I think qualifies him for sainthood), as well as Ferris Bueller, Uncle Buck, and Ducky (to name a very few). Few can hope to accomplish as much in their lifetime.

Rest in peace, John Hughes. In your honor, I will recite Sixteen Candles verbatim as I make dinner.

The film festival starts in my living room at sundown.

Oh yikes, 16 candles?? Wow that is a look back into my time capsule. I think I will recite the words of Kevin from Home Alone and think fondly of Mr. Hughes!

Definitely a part of your childhood! I think a small part of you married your hubby because of his name. Love you!
