I have admired this man since I was a little girl and first saw him in the movie "The Sting." In my mind, he represented what it meant to live a full and passionate life. He was the ideal that I held in my heart as the kind of man I would want for myself. He will be missed. There's not only a hole in the wall, or a hole in many hearts, but a hole in humanity because of his departure.
A beautiful tribute from a blog that I recently started following and in a more personal perspective can be found here: Memories of Paul Newman
