Remembering Mother Newland
We can all think of persons in our lives that have made lasting impressions as they passed our way. One such person was the late Francis Perkins Blanding Newland.
She was a godly mother who touched the lives of many, and whose contributions to the community made a lasting impression on her family, friends, and church.
Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are the living reminders of what she taught, lived and wanted to see achieved in the lives of those blessed by her presence. I felt it important for her family to know that she has not been forgotten, and that her memory lives, not only in and through them, but in the minds and thoughts of all who knew her. It is our desire that her family find peace in knowing that the sweet savor of her presence continues to linger in our hearts as well as in theirs.
