We've lost a legend...

Paul Leonard Newman
January 26, 1925 - September 26, 2008

"Funny, upright, smart, brave, moral, talented, faithful, honest, manly, wise, humble: he's simply good people. A mensch, in fact and deed.

...my work seems very unimportant right now, and so, it seems to me, is a repetition of the man's amazing accomplishments on screen, on the race track, in the fields of food sales and philanthropy and as a family man, public citizen and friend. What matters is that a good -- and maybe a great -- man is passing from among us, and our world will be just that much smaller when he has gone.

So just this, then: Godspeed."

I knew it was inevitable when I heard the diagnosis, but, still, it was a shock to read first thing this morning when I opened the news reader.

I know, I just had to have a good cry about this. God blessed us with a very special gift for 83 years.
