Paul Newman January 26, 1925- September 26, 2008

I adored this man.  I cannot begin to put into words the numbness I’ve felt after finding out Saturday morning he was gone.  I thought of his wife Joanne Woodward.  When I joined Chi Omega I was tickled at the thought that Joanne was one of my sisters.  I thought of Robert Redford.  The two of them epitomize collaboration and friendship.  But I kept thinking of Paul– an Ohioan, like myself, who lived life, recognized the privileges of his life,  and  who strived to make a difference in the lives of others.

Good night, sweet prince/ And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
