Rita Jack and I and Cheryl, Jay and especially Jeffrey are really going to miss you along with your many friends. You were a special wife to Joesph Witt brother of Jack Witt.. We had such good time together and especially our vacation to Nashville, Tennessee was really fun. Tell Joe "Pukie" that Jeff said to tell him "HI" and your mother Millie also. He took us to your funeral as he did not want us to miss you going to the Lord. We know you are in heaven with the Lord. Mark is especially going to miss you. We will watch over him and take care of him the best we can and I know Joanne and her family will visit him often as they love him also. Carole and Jack Witt..
