Memorial website in the memory of your loved one


This site is dedicated to our beloved son, Jake Witt who was born into his parent's arms on October 15, 2002 and passed into Jesus's arms on March 30, 2003 . We will never forget him and we will remember him forever.

Jake was born with heart defects, endured open heart surgery.  In early March, he got RSV, returned to the hospital where he would later die.
Jake has a big brother: Nickolas, who is three years older.  Nick still remembers and misses his brother.

Shortly after Jake died, A daughter was born to us in 2004.  Her name is Sophia... but we should have named her Joy because of what she has brought to our family.


                

Oh Sweet baby Jake why is it so
That you are gone is not for me to know?
Five and a half months with you, not that long
We will never forget you my precious little one.
Big brown eyes that lit up a room
It hurts so bad that you died too soon.
Together again we shall be some day
For this I still live for and pray.
You died sinless, no one living can be
Amazing Blessing having carried you inside me.
A lifetime of love, a wonderful gift
My son and forever second child you will always be!


Love, Mommy

Philippians 4:13




It Still Hurts

I think of you, emotion runs to my head
A tear rolls down my cheek
My throat clamps up
My stomach tightens down
Thunder runs through my body and convulses me
My voice changes and pain comes out
More tears run down my cheeks
Sorrow strikes because you are still dead my son
Nothing can change that
I go through this over and over
It still hurts...

Jake, I miss you!! Love, Mommy





HOMESICK by Mercy Me

You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbye
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again
To see you again

And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow

I've never been more homesick than now
