Dear Karen and Mark,
Your parents were very dear to my family over the years at Ebenezer Church in Detroit. Then I served in Kenya, and they were so interested. Mike and I would visit with them every few years, and they were always so supportive and encouraging. We are grateful for their influence and blessing in our lives.
We rejoice in their eternal life but are sad that they are gone our lives here. May the Lord comfort you -

Don is hearing, "Well done, my good and faithful servant".
Don's smile was contagious and he seemed to like everyone.
He's playing his violin in the heavenly orchestra.

God has spoken, He has called his faithful servant to rest, His servant answered "Here I am Lord, it is me Lord, take me and use me just as you please'. The Lord then said, come home and rest, your baptism is now complete; His servant answered "too easy Lord I am here".
Rest in perfect peace Mr.Witt.
