My heart is heavy with the loss of Mrs. Witchey. While typing her name into a keyboard I recall the times I struggled to spell her name being in her language arts class. I remember where I sat and how I could hear her voice echo off the walls. I remember the joy of her tone and the laughter that became contagious you unknowingly crack a smile. Her classroom was what learning could be. I’m glad I had the opportunity to experience it and share a small part in her life. She will be greatly missed. God bless her family.

To the Witcheys. The Witcheys were our next door neighbors for about 20 years and we couldn’t ask for nicer neighbors. Lori will be greatly missed. We pray for the entire family to find peace and strength.
