To the Gitt and Woods families

Sorry for your loss. Know he is at peace.

Remember your memories over the years.

When you think of dairy farmers and Holstein cattle Penn Gate and the Gitt's come to mind. He took pride in his farming operation and worked hard a lot of years.

Can remember him visiting the USDA office and waiting on him many years reporting his acres and other paperwork. You had to get him acquainted with the aerial map but then he could tell you where his crops were planted.

Always had that smile and a story or 2 to tell you.

Take care.
