John Hughes - RIP (1950 - Aug 6, 2009)

John Hughes, the wonderful mastermind behind so many movies that defined my generation and offered a humorous look at our lives (not to mention highlighted one of my favorite comedic actors, John Candy), died this week.
In case you are not sure who he is...let me list:
Home Alone (1990) (written by) Christmas Vacation (1989) (written by) Uncle Buck (1989) (written by) The Great Outdoors (1988) (written by) She's Having a Baby (1988) (written by)
Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) (written by) Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) (written by)
Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) (written by) Pretty in Pink (1986) (written by)
Weird Science (1985) (written by) European Vacation (1985) (screenplay) (story) The Breakfast Club (1985) (written by) Sixteen Candles (1984) (written by) Vacation (1983) (screenplay)
Mr. Mom (1983) (written by)
to name a few!

Today I came across what I believe is the most beautiful tribute I have ever seen. Please take a moment to check it out. (If you were part of the Brat Pack generation, it will be even more meaningful for you).
Titled "We'll Know when we get there. Sincerely, John Hughes"
