Paul Newman RIP

Paul Newman has died at age 83.

One of my all time favorite movies is THE LONG, HOT SUMMER, with a young, sexy Paul Newman playing the role of Ben Quick. It paired him with his wife Joanne Woodward, with whom he shared a long, devoted marriage. (They married in 1958, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary earlier this year). Of his faithfulness to his wife, he once said, "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?"

He will be missed.

It's funny because I was more shocked to see he was 93 than died. I always see Paul for twenty years ago.

That's one of my favorite movies too. In fact, I thought about the movie while writing my book The Preacher's Son.

He and his wife were a true love story. Two beautiful people.
