Paul Newman Dies At 83
I've reached a point in my life where some of the best of my girlhood idols are exiting the world stage. Paul Newman was a first "heartthrob" because beyond his good looks, he projected humor, intelligence and later the humanitarian traits for which many came to love him. My heart goes out to his wife Joanne Woodward and their family at this time. Their loss is personal and perhaps very painful. I hope that the knowledge of the love and esteem in which those outside the family held their loved one will sustain them at this time.
I'll post more eulogies on this blog for my own reminder of the brief nature of life.
