My condolences to his family and friends.
I loved his Nightmare on Elm Street movies, and still love it always. I have never met him, and now never will. I was sad that he is gone. But, he left us with very scary movies to watch, and supernatural characters to love and hate. In my feeling is that I never wanted him to die, but it happened. He could have made more frightening movies. I hope he will rest in peace with God and have his glory with him also in Heaven. This is sad in the horror news. I will mourn his death. He will always be in our hearts and minds forever. He will be missed, but never forgotten. He will always be remembered. My favorite character out of all his movies is the iconic Freddy Krueger. Goodbye Wes Craven! You will be missed! RIP
