My deepest sympathy, Susan, to you, my friend, as well as your Mother and the entire Newsome family in the tremendous loss of your beloved Father. He must have had so many interesting, historical stories he witnessed first-hand to share. I pray, through the family memories, that you will find the strength, comfort and peace that God's Grace and Love provides.

Blue and Family, I am so sorry for the loss of Calvin. The times that I had met Uncle Calvin are cherished memories. He was always in our thoughts and prayers. Rosa was my grandma and she always talked about her big brother Calvin with praise and love. I wish we could be there to celebrate his life but we are unable to travel. I hope you know we are thinking about you and praying for comfort during this time. Love you! Love, Nicole (Stewart) Collier and Family. (Leslie's daughter)

Blue and family,
Calvin and I were 8 years apart in age. As cousins we shared many close and memorable times. I treasure the memories of our youth.
Due to physical sickness I regret that I cannot attend with the family to share my condolences personally.
You will be in my prayers.
May God give you peace and comfort.

To Amy and all the family - I am sorry for your loss. From reading the obit, I know he was an honorable man and will be missed sorely. What a wonderful testimony also of having been married for 70 years. God bless you all.

My condolences to the Newsome family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our loving Heavenly Father, too. He did not purpose his human family to grow old and die but purpose us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever (1 Corinthians 15:26; Isaiah 25:8). He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Hosea 13:14 “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.” He will then reverse the aging process__ Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16)! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
