There is a point where feelings go beyond words. I have lost a real friend. My life—and this country—is better for his being in it. Robert Redford

I was blessed to have known him. The world is better because of him. Sometimes God makes perfect people and Paul Newman was one of them. Sally Field
Paul Newman played many unforgettable roles. But the ones for which he was proudest never had top billing on the marquee. Devoted husband. Loving father. Adoring grandfather. Dedicated philanthropist…Always and to the end, Dad was incredibly grateful for his good fortune. In his own words: ‘It’s been a privilege to be here.’ He will be profoundly missed by those whose lives he touched, but he leaves us with extraordinary inspiration to draw upon. During this difficult time, we ask for privacy for our family. Newman’s three daughters
