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.

When I was CEO of the Birmingham Urban League in the 90s we were in the same office with Attorney Newton. He was always so kind and willing to share his knowledge & expertise. As a person who seemed to never meet a stranger his humble nature was so impressive,because he never forgot where he came from and treated everyone with respect.I was blessed" to call him a friend and role model. May GOD continue to bless his family and 'remember,to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD."
