Paul Newman dying with lung cancer

I just learned yesterday that Paul Newman has lung cancer. He just finished his chemotherapy and has gone home. From what I have read in the news, he only has weeks to live. And he had requested to be at home with his family when he passes away.

He has given his race car with the number '82' to his best friend. And he has made provisions for his son to take over his salad dressing business where all the proceeds go to charities.

Newman will join lots of the great actors who have gone before him such as Clark Gable, Henry Fonda, John Wayne, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart. He seems to be a very personable man. I have always admired him as well as his acting ability. And it helped that he was a handsome man! :)

That is very sad. I always loved Paul Newman.
