    Mr. Newman was one of the kindest men I have ever met. While I knew him a short time, he made a big impression on me. He had a quick wit and great sense of humor. He was strong and very courageous. I fell in love with his son, Ronnie and I only wish I could have met him sooner. He was deeply loved by his family and many friends. He is reunited with his lovely wife and is in no more pain. Heaven has gained a lovely man. I love you Mr. Newman. ❤️
