Butch, Betsy, Allen and Marc, so saddened by this news as I read it in Arizona. Can't believe so many years have passed since we crossed paths at St. John, and the ties with Linda and Ross, my niece and your cousin, if I remember the connection correctly. We don't know the "why" when someone so young is called home, but someday we can ask our Lord Himself. A portion of a long lasting family air dynasty is gone. My prayers for your peace and comfort. God does care.

Hi Butch and Betsy it is with a heavy heart that your Newland cousins share this loss. It is another one of those things that is beyond human understanding.

Much Love,
