Unbelievably sad. Damn....Reading the article I found myself wondering why only one of Horner's two daughters were mentioned.
I was shocked to read elsewhere (the article appears genuine) that Horner's other daughter, Rebecca, died last year, barely two years after her father's death.
What a cruel and tragic time for a family.
Huh! That's the movie that did it for me too; it was most likely the first time my parents took me to the theater. I was four, I think. His name was one of the first that I started recognizing in credits and on VHS boxes.Seeing Apollo 13 (when I was eight!) was one of the first times I can remember understanding the magic that music adds to movies. Fantastic composer, a really sad loss.
I bet he was responsible for lots of lightbulb moments like ours.
