Sad to report that actor Christopher Reeve passed away Sunday (in New York) from heart failure, he was 52.

Reeves will always be remembered for his role as SUPERMAN, a part which most suited him says I. He also played in films such as Somwhere In Time and did stage work on Broadway.

He was injured and paralyzed in 1995 while riding a horse and spent the last few years lecturing and attending benefits to help raise money for those less fortunate. His courage and determination set an example for others to follow - he will be missed.

Somewhere in Time is a great movie and one of my wife's favorites, we used a lot of the sound track at our wedding and her dress was based on Jane's. I'm not looking forward to going home this morning to tell my wife the news Smile

What amazed me was what a super actor he was AFTER his accident. Did any of you see that remake of that old Jimmy Stewart/Hitchcock movie, where the disabled guy witnessed a murder from his apartment?

Sad. I am disappointed that the news in my area didn't mention so far today.

Thank you Chris for all the memories growing up. You made me believe that a man could fly.

Hey Brian, thank you for that beautiful poster tribute. I spent the whole day absent mindedly whistling the theme from superman. Your poster hit the nail right on the head. The way Reeve played superman, I believed he was superman, not an actor using camera tricks.

I am sure our friend upstairs is making him feel comfortable amd welcome even as we speak.

Goodbye Chris,
Thank you for BEING Superman
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

When I was 8 years old I saw a man flying on TV and thought if only I could do that. What child hasn't had that dream ever? Christopher Reeve took a script, a character and made a dream for many young children throughtout the ages to wish for. It's hard to believe you can actually shed a a few tears for someone you never new but felt so personally close to. For those of you that have ever dreamed of flying....I'm sure you understand. Farewell Superman...you will be dearly missed!!

He did an excellent job in portraying the Comic book hero that I have loved for so long.

He will be missed.

I guess the name Super Man doesn't only apply to a comic character, but really a man who was the best person he could be, even while struggling from paralysis. He was a charming person every day, every second. After his accident, he did not give up, did not lose hope; he remained determined to achieve whatever possible and do as much with his difficulties to fulfill an average person's dream.....to live a life of peace, happiness, and most of all, love. A strong man who will never be forgotten in our lives. Mr. Reeve, I pray that you live on with joy. God bless.

After his accident, Christopher Reeve helped me believe that there is no such thing as kryptonite.

May we all have his strength and virtue.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

An amazing story he had. When everything came apart for him, he kept it together. How much more super can you get.

In tribute the call center that I work at is showing all 4 Superman films as well as Somewhere In Time tomorrow. It's hard to believe that a hero has died.
It's amazing that one man could touch some many people's lives by personifying the character that made him famous long after the cameras were off.
It's hard to believe that this is the true Death Of Superman.
You will be missed.

If there ever was an icon, Superman was an icon...

We ALL know him.

If there ever was a "super" man, Christopher Reeves was a "super" man...

We'll ALL miss him.
