JIMMY C. NEWMAN HAS PASSED AWAY

JIMMY C. NEWMAN
HAS PASSED AWAY


(Nashville, TN-6.22.14)  Country Music has suffered another devastating loss with the passing of Grand Ole Legend and my dear friend, Jimmy C. Newman.  Jimmy C. passed away yesterday evening.  I ask you to keep his wife Mae and family in your thoughts and prayers as they suffer through this great loss.

I find it very difficult as I have in the pass when we lose such a great person.  My thoughts are filled with sadness and I am not sure if I know the words to express how I feel.  Lately, we have lost so many of our great legends, and now this loss of my great friend, finds me searching for words to say what is in my heart.  I have known Jimmy C. and his wife Mae for over 40 years that I have been in the music industry and he is the kindness, most sincere person I have ever know.  They have been my dear friends for all of these years and as I slowly try to write I am not having an easy time choosing the words that I feel need to be written.  I hope  you will forgive me for not being able to convey the sadness I feel at this time.  I am trying to say what I feel, but I am finding that the words are not coming easy.  I think of the sadness that Miss Mae and family are going through at this time.  I know that Jimmy C. is no doubt in heaven, and knowing him the way I do, he no doubt is trying to teach our Blessed Lord some of his Cajun language.

What can I say about this blessed man that has not already been written and said.  Jimmy C. and Mae were an example of friends that Webster’s dictionary cannot explain.  Their friendship was one that was treasured by all those who were his friends, and I was lucky to be able to say that he and Mae are my friends.  I know I am not using the right words that I want to say, but Jimmy C. Newman and Mae have been my dear friends for so long that sometimes words do not come easy, and in this case the words are not coming the way I want to write them, so please forgive me for having this difficult time.  I wish I could write what I feel but I am not doing too well at this time.  For all those who know Jimmy C. and Mae, I think you know what I am trying to say.  His passing is a great loss to his family, friends, the country music industry, and his many, many fans. 

CAJUN MUSIC HAS LOST ITS PATRIARCH, and I don’t think that he can be replaced, but I know that he has left a great legacy to his music and we have all lost a dear friend, a special human being.  I am absolutely positive that as I write these words, Jimmy C. Newman is with his Master in Heaven.

Jimmy C. and Mae were two special people in my life.  They gave me their friendship when I needed it the most during difficult times, and they gave it to me with no reservations.  They gave me advice when I asked for it, and the word friendship to them was a strong and meaningful word that they lived by.  I was blessed to be able to be their friend.

I do not have funeral arrangements at this time, but as soon as I receive that information I will pass it on immediately.  I am sure the Grand Ole Opry webpage will have details before I do.  Again, please keep Miss Mae and family in your prayers, as I know that prayers at this time will be their strength to guide them through their loss.

MAY OUR BLESSED SAVIOR GUIDE MISS MAE AND FAMILY THROUGH THEIR LOSS, AND MAY JIMMY C. REST IN PEACE. Jimmy C. Newman Video Interview by Christian Lamitschka
