  1. Dear Wittmer Family
    Bev was such a wonderful person. She touched my heart the first time I met her. She loved her music. I always thought it was so cool that she bought really hip music at our store.
    May you all find comfort knowing she was loved very much. Her heart was as big as her smile. Loved her spirit and her soul. Peace to you all. I would have been with you today but I have the flu. Kathy call me anytime. Sweet Bev! Rest in Peace.

  2. Dear Curt, Kathy and Mykel,

    Please accept our condolences on the passing of your mother and grandmother. She was a very special lady. Over the last year or two she went through so much suffering, I am at least relieved that she is no longer suffering here on Earth and is in the Loving Arms of God, Our Heavenly Father.
    She always livened up our luncheon get togethers and will be greatly missed. Even though my interactions with Bev were minimal, there was just something that always made me feel at ease from the first time that I met her. Maybe it was her ability to joke around with us even though there was a fifteen year age difference. Anytime that I go to Sprout’s I will always think of Bev as that seemed to be her favorite restaurant. As I said before, Bev will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace special lady.

Mother had slipped from us for months.  Her appearance at the funeral home was amazing.  She looked like she did years previous.
