a legend

it's sad to see him go.
cool hand luke.
" i can eat fifty eggs."
"sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand."

butch cassidy.
"are you crazy? the fall will probably kill you!"
"i have vision. and the rest of the world wears bifocals."

it's humbling to read the tributes from people who knew him well.
especially those from his family.
his daughters said that his greatest role was that of dad and grandfather.
he had class.
and, apparently, no ego.
imagine that.
and the amount of money he raised for the things he believed in.
and he believed in things that mattered.
of course,
he just looked so damn good.
that didn't hurt.
sad to see him go.

I agree. He was a beautiful man on the inside.....and just perfect on the outside too.
Thanks for sharing.
