I fell in love with this man the moment I laid eyes on him, my eyes on those beautiful blues. I loved him more when I found he was unattainable, a devoted husband to his now-widowed Joanne Woodward. I loved his movies, his off-screen personality, but most of all, his philanthropic work.
Here at Rancho Laurena, we have had more than our share/not enough of his Italian dressing, popcorn, grape juice. Did I tell you I love(d) the man?
The announcement of his death this morning saddens me beyond words. As David was doing farm chores, I walked out to tell him the news and he thought one of our family had died. In a way, one has, and to cancer, salt in a tender wound.
Godspeed Paul Newman. Say hello to Daddy while you're up there. He was always a fan as well.
I realize Bob is still with us (thank goodness) but I thought this was worth adding.
