I was very sad to hear that Mr. Newsom passed away. He and Viola were both lovely people and have a special place in my heart. He was a positive influence on the lives of many children. He was my principal at Swartz Elementary and Junior High many years ago. He was a rare person and the world will be poorer without him. Heaven rejoices and I pray for his family through this difficult time. He will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
