What was supposed to be a happy day, ended up being a sad day as well. September 26, 2008 - the day my daughter was born (one year ago), Paul Newman passed away at his home in Westport from cancer.
Paul Newman was definitely an icon, although he wouldn't be happy about being called that. He was handsome, courageous, and always stuck up for the underdog.
There really are no words to describe how the loss of Paul Newman will affect the world. He has donated all his profits from his Newman's Own empire to charities. This has totaled more than $175 million.
