Let John Patrick's spirit shine within us everyday!

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, John Witt, 26, born on April 5, 1987 and passed away on August 31, 2013. We will remember and love him forever. 
Our sweet John Patrick was taken from us suddenly and tragically from an accidental heroin overdose. We all would have done anything to have saved him - but the demon addiction forces you to hide the truth from yourself and those you love. He hid the seriousness of his addiction but was trying to overcome it. He was happy and hopeful about his future. The night he died he worked out at LA Fitness with his mom and dad - we bought him a membership and he was so excited! I honestly believe he thought he could overcome his addiction and was going to quit "soon".  His addiction to heroin was only a very small part of him - It did not define him. 
He treasured the time he spent with his family and completely adored his nephews Ashton, Aiden and Mason. They were a bright spot in his life. His nephews all loved him and would hang all over him when he was around. 
John Patrick loved his siblings -he loved playing jokes and having fun with them. He loved his twin, Troy Michael. He loved challenging him to ANYTHING and valued "just hanging with Troy Boy". He cherished his time with his sister, Sharon Michelle  - even when they just did crazy things together. He looked up to his big brother, Christopher Ian and loved spending time with him - at the beach in California or in the stands at Ashton's football practices/games. John Patrick was so proud of his dad, Peter Krayer and was excited about his upcoiming graduation from law school. And my sweet John Patrick cherished his "Ma" - he loved me bigger than the world.
His smile could light any room, his laughter was contagious, he gave the best hugs! He loved helping people and was proud of doing mission work in Honduras while growing up - he looked forward to going again as an adult. He loved helping people. He loved music, tattoos, hanging with his friends and life. He had so much to live for and was excited about his future. He is gone much too soon and will always be loved, cherished and missed. 

I love you, my sweet Angel JP! Please watch over us all - we still need you!

I miss your laughter and hugs so much! I still do not have any words to say but that I love you and think about you everyday! I miss our days we had together.  We had a lot of great times.

Love always,

"I can't believe it has been a year and one week since you died. I have no idea how I have survived without you. I feel like all I can do is go through the motions of life - it's just to horrific when a mama has to bury her baby. I miss you with everything I have and will love you forever!

"I miss you, son. I go through my day and see a million things I'd like to get your take on - that quirky humor could always get me out of my own head. I'm so glad we got to share a cigar or two...but, man, I'd give anything to have more time with you.
