Sister Pat and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss, your loss but not his. He was the epitome of a loving pastor, a peacemaker who had the Godly gift of bringing people together with quiet but wise counsel. I will always be thankful for you and him, the many hours and miles you spent in your service to our Lord and your shepherding of us at Bethel Church. I know you will miss him, his presence, the sound of his voice, but he has gone to the One who redeemed, called, and kept him all his life. I understand your heart is broken but he will be near you in the days ahead. Love and prayers, Teresa Babson

Heartfelt sympathies to Pat, Dennis, Karen, Anita, Emily and all the family. Will always remember Newell from Church and fun childhood at Christmas. Heaven has certainly gained a faithful Angel.
