To the Witt family. I lived right across the street from Mrs. Witt at 5561 Howell Park. I often got the chance to talk to her when she was checking her plants or retrieving her newspaper on the weekends. She was like a grandmother to me and me and my wife will always cherish her memories. She is for sure smiling down on us all. Condolences from Anthony and Sharon.
