I am so sorry for your loss. I have seen DR. Pitts for the past 15 years, and she truly helped me put my life back together again. She will be missed. May God bless you on this very sad occasion. J.R.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Pitts on an inpatient psychiatric unit. She had such compassion for her clients and was one of "the best". I will truly miss her.

Dr. Pitts had such a powerful impact on my life; I cannot express what she meant to me. I have one really big regret and that is that I did not keep a journal for the 10 years I saw her. I want to look back on printed pages of her wisdom, but her guidance will always be with me. She helped me become a better person. I loved her and she will live on in a special place in my heart. In the letter she sent to her friends, she included a note to me: "The depth of your grief reflects the intensity of your caring." I cannot say it better. I will deeply miss her. I am sorry for your loss, our loss. B.J.V.
