My sincere condolences to the Newton family. I know sometime we say if I could see my love one just one more time. Think of the pain and suffering they were in... would you want to see they suffer even one more day or even an hour? Nothing can bring them back ; no tears,no broken heart no prayers. But our happy memories will live on in our hearts forever. There is tomorrow. Cherish each day you spent with Demetrius.

It sounds like Mr. Newton was a courageous and honorable man who was respected by those he was associated with, even those with other viewpoints. You can be proud that he had such an impact on the Civil Rights Movement, as well as the politics of Alabama. So sorry for your loss.
