Kathy, Condolences on your dads passing. thinking of you at this difficult time

To the Newhook family; I was so sad to read about Mr. Newhook (he’ll always be “Mr. Newhook” to me.). I have such good memories of him during the time you guys lived in Stephenville. I’m glad that I had a few opportunities to see him a few times over the past couple of years. My sister Jane and I think of your family often and I wish you all the best. Stay strong in your memories of him,

Lisa

Sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We were close friends and neighbours for many many years. We took part in church functions together, wardens, serving, and everything that goes with it. There were also years with the A.N.D operations in Millertown. Many memories I’ll hold on to, with Jim, and the whole family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

We were so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was a very special person… Your Mom and Dad were a very special and loving couple.. I know the sadness you all must be feeling. Great times were spent with them in the fall. They made us feel so welcome and a part of their family. You, Charlie, Kathy and Scott were always so attentive that I’m sure all of your good times together only made more and more happy memories. Hope all of your memories will help your whole family through this very difficult time.
