    I was sadly to hear about Dewitt. He was my class mate, and he was such a nice person, he always had a smile, and very quiet. There isn't anything he want do for you. He wouldn't say anything unless you said something to him. He was fun to be around, and if he said anything it was funny. Everyone loved Dewitt in our class. I am praying for the family that God gives them strength, and comfort. Dewitt will be missed. RIP
