Oh that is so sad. I loved his films, especially his film relationship with Robert Redford. He was such a handsome man and appeared to be very 'normal' for such a big star
His generosity was as wonderful as was his talent for acting. He donated all the royalties/profits from all of his food products; most going to the Whole in the Wall Gang, a charity for terminally ill and critically ill children.
A rare thing in this world, a man of principle and ethics. He was a great favorite of my Mother's. :yes:

Becca called me in the room to tell me on Sat night. I was very upset. I just love Paul Newman. He was just awesome.
You know Johnie? It's something you'll always remember; that you were at WDW when you learned of his death. Like us with Princess Diana. We were at WDW, staying at the BC when the news of the accident and losing her came through. I'll never forget it. :(

I was on my honeymoon in Virginia Beach when I heard that Charles Schulz (Peanuts creator) died. I cried and cried.
