Paul Newman Should Win an Oscar for his Life

Mini called me this weekend and gave me the news that the person who made her favorite place in the world, The Hole in the Wall Camp, is dead. She was sad, but happy that he went to heaven and that he didn't go when camp was in session, because it would have been too sad to be at camp and hear this news...Mini has such a grip on life and death...hum.

What a life...It got me thinking, they give out Oscars for acting...what if we gave out Oscars for life. Would I get one? Would you get one? Paul Newman would definately get one...RIP.

Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, married 50 years
He once told a reporter about their successful marriage... "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?" We should all be so lucky.

Paul Newman and Liz Taylor, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF one of my favorite movies...I have to get it on DVD...

His food company, Newman's Own, produced more than 200 million dollars in profits since 1982 - money which was donated to philanthropic works such as his Hole in the Wall camps for children with serious illnesses.

The Hole in the Wall camp organization said Newman's 'selfless commitment to the welfare of children living with serious medical illnesses has been inspirational to people everywhere.'
The camps were part of 'his living legacy that will continue to thrive.'
'Paul's leadership, compassion and motivational spirit can never be replaced, but he has left us strong and confident. Through the many camper smiles we witness each and every day, Pauls dream lives on.
