Newman: “I want to do this”
Speaking on his podcast, You’re kiddingNewman, often in tears, chose to talk about his deceased wife and told listeners and co-organizers, “I want to do this.”
“I’ve had a pretty tough week, so I don’t want anyone listening to this to feel sorry for me before I start,” Newman said. “Many people suffer from adversity on a daily basis. I’m not going to pick myself out for sympathy.
“I got people to contact me, you wouldn’t believe the people who contacted me who are suffering from similar episodes in their lives.
“There will be quite a few people who don’t sympathize with me, and that’s okay. They’ll say I’ve got what I deserve, good luck, good luck, and all that, and I understand that, And you can have that opinion about me and what happened to me. That’s okay because I think I’m affected by the polarization. “
Sam did CPR for 20 minutes
Newman tried to get fish and chips with his friends and call Brown on Saturday night, but she was worried because she didn’t answer.
He explained in a podcast the moment he went home to find her dead, revealing that he had CPRed her for 20 minutes, even though he knew it was too late.
“I went home, walked in the door, turned on the TV in the bedroom, so I looked down there and lay in her underwear — apparently in bed or to eat something. I got out of bed, “said Newman.
“She is lying on a tile outside the laundry. As soon as I saw her, I knew she was dead.
“I rang 000, and a very kind person said you should give CPR, and she told me through it.
“I have a phone on the speaker and make this poor woman lying there look very peaceful and apparently dead, but the operator does it in case she has a spark of life. I think she said she would continue.
“So for 20 minutes I’m giving CPR to what I knew was a corpse.”
Note that Newman had to read
Newman felt forced to sit down and write about his soulmate after she died, and shed tears as she read the words in honor of his love of love.
“It’s been 24 hours since I wrote this. It’s been 24 hours since I got home and found my dear Amanda lying on the tile next to the laundry,” he said.
“She wasn’t completely dressed, and because the TV was in the bedroom, I thought she got up to grab a bite or go to the bathroom. She’s so calm, kind and innocent. But for some reason I soon found out that she was dead.
“While waiting for an ambulance, it’s hard to explain the feeling that the speaker has a 000 number while the operator is talking to me through CPR technology that I’ve been wasting for 30 minutes.
“This isn’t a critique of the instructions and the time it took for the ambulance to arrive, but the despair of feeling completely helpless was further heightened by the fact that the woman I was married to … died six months ago.
“So why am I writing this? Maybe it’s catharsis, or I’d like to share what the relationship means to me, because at the age of 75 to discover the formula It took three-quarters of a century.
“I have married and loved many women, and for a long time I have enjoyed being in harmony with women, rather than eternal women.
“The reasons they couldn’t bear are complicated, but very simple. Restlessness, tension, ego, simmering anxiety, and above all, stubbornness to succumb.”
Tears continued to flow as Newman looked back at his relationship with Brown and explained that she was shy about making him so happy.
“For the last 15 years, we have lived together and have never had any verbal or physical conflicts. Certainly there are some strong words from time to time, but she does so because of the essential nature of the compromise. I had the knack of not extending the rift, “Newman said.
“I have never felt the pressure to adhere to or adhere to the universal rules of implicit cohabitation. There is a contradiction. There is no tension in the relationship, calmness predominates. ..
“I’ve been happier than ever in the last decade, and getting home at the end of the day was really fun I was looking forward to. Tired of both of us. I didn’t have any anxiety.
“If there’s more presence to guide us, I think that’s why I planned to get married six months after her 50th birthday. So November 20, 2020 On the day she knocked on the door and in front of my friend and blesser Greg Evans, my dear longtime friend Kevin King, and my eldest son Jack, we were married to the Newmans. became.
“I have never seen a man who is happy with his genuine pride as my wife. Thank God for the memories of the day.
“She was loyal, affectionate, worried and protective, and had the same strong will as anyone I’ve ever met. I always love her about who she was and what she was.
“The maxim I often quote when people face adversity is,” Never cry what you can’t cry. ” I cried a lot about Amanda Newman.
“Finally. Another maxim I cherish is,” There are many things in life that catch your eye, but only a few that catch your heart. Pursue them.
“Amanda Newman certainly caught my eye, and above all she caught my heart.”
