In Memory of

Johnnie W. Newton

Sept. 12, 1919 - May 24, 2005

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone;

For part of us went with you the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories; your love is still our guide;

And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same;

But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Sadly missed by

Husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather,

Every day I reflect on how blessed I was to spend so many wonderful years with you. Your spirit and legacy live on and can be seen every day through the eyes and smiles of your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We miss you and love you very much.

Love always,

Desma, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren
