It's been 56 years since the von Trapp family do-re-mi'd right into our hearts in the movie musical The Sound of Music. Here's a look back at the child actors in the 1965 classic, and a shot of them all grown up.

The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization confirmed the news in a statement, saying, "Heather was part of 'the family.' There is really no other way to describe the members of the cast of the movie of THE SOUND OF MUSIC. And of 'the kids,' Heather was a cheerful and positive member of the group, always hoping for the next gathering. We are all lucky to have known her, and she will happily live on in that beautiful movie. We will miss her."
