CandleAlthough I am sorry to hear about Uncle Dewitt there is some comfort knowing that the Chessman brothers are together creating mischief in heaven with those southern boy smiles. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I remember Uncle Dee in so many different ways. He was always smiling and/ or laughing. The main thing I remember is him and my father playing cards and carrying on. They are all together again. lots of love.

Uncle DeWitt always made my dad smile. We loved seeing him because he would tell us stories about their mischievous childhood(s).
I will always remember his infectious, warm smile . Rest In Peace and Godspeed Uncle.
