My heart is so heavy for the family but I know Mr. Pitts is walking and telling tales in the heavens above. Such a sweet man that was always so positive. He would come to the ballfield to watch Jennifer play softball offering his positive advise and support. His dream was to live to be 100! Not many can live to forfill that dream but he did. He will he missed but knowing he is safe, happy and secure in the arms of the Lord is all one could want. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
