    I’m so saddened to have heard the news. I worked with Jill at an ins. agency and she was so fun to talk to, she also had a smile & she always had a comment. We argued & poked fun on our different football teams. I’m a packer fan lol no need to say anymore. We had went to lunch a few times & never having a problem with conversations. I will truly miss her for all time. Her fur-baby will miss her as well. I do know someday i will understand the “WHY” but until then I will remember her spirit, her smile, her wisdom & just our memories. My thoughts, prayers & strength goes to the family.

    We were “naughty” some times, Jill, in our high school years, but, such good memories and lots of laughter, and now having to say goodbye brings tears for me and many more who will miss you so much. What will we do without one of our “hot chicks” from the 66er’s??

    Lots of prayers and love to the Witt family. Please know that she was loved by many for many, many years and I, for one, will cherish her memory.
