Hailie you will always be in my heart. You were taken way too soon even though I know God knows what he is doing. We will miss you sweetheart and I for one think of you every day. You had so much going for you. You were so kind, helpful, thoughtful, strong and generous. I will always remember the good times we had coloring and scratching your back, not that it itched but it would relax you and put you to sleep. I hope God will grant me the opportunity to be with you when my turn comes. I love you to the moon and back darling. I know you are at peace now and out of pain. Now you can rest and enjoy being with God and Jesus.

You are the bravest, more courageous girl I know! I am so lucky to have known you and your family! I know you are flying high and looking down on all of us!

Lauren - Hailie is watching you and your spunkyness- never stop smiling. And Luke - my heart! Thank you for always willing to lend a helping hand- be true to you and always have integrity!

Dear Marcy and Family,

I never met Hailie but want to express my condolences. I have an idea of what she went thru as my 18-year-old brother died of a brain tumor many years ago. You should find comfort in the fact that Hailie is definitely in heaven today. I will remember Hailie's family in my prayers.

With Much Love. Loraine

I will never forget the time Walt and I came out for a visit we had so much fun with you and all the kids at that time. Papa Walt and Mindy will wait for you then show you around inside heavens pearly gates. I know now that you agree no longer suffering or hurting any longer. It sure is a very sad situation that you had to fight this cancer so many different times. Cancer needs to leave children alone and take a big jump off of a very tall bridge. I love you and the whole family. Take care and enjoy your wings because you darn well deserve them after the fight you have fought for such a long period of time. LOVE YOU ALL

I'll never forget our almost weekly conversations. I don't know how it happened but seriously everytime she called, we were at the store. Hailie, would talk to her cousins and keep them distracted from asking for $100 worth of junk food and candy lol. She may not have been my blood but she is and always will be very special to me and my family. May our sweet Hailie rest in peace. Mindy and Papa Walt were waiting for you at heavens gates, and ready to show you paradise.

"If you get there before I do, don't give up on me, I'll meet you when my chores are through. I don't know how long I'll be, but I'm not gonna let you down. Darling wait and see, and between now and then. I'll be loving you. Love, Me"
From love me by Collin Raye

I'll meet you when my chores are through sweet Hailie

Love Always Auntie Katie

I never got the chance to meet Hailie Witt but I have heard so many good things about her. Witt family I know words dont help but she is with Mindy in HEAVEN taking care and watching over you guys until Mindy and GOD can put her back in your loving arms again. I wish cancer would just pack there stuff and disappear and never show its face again. Someone please tell me why it has to take a child these kids are our future we all need to take a stand back and fight for the CURE to come out.
Love you all and take care of yourself and others.
