My condolences to the Fletcher family. It is never easy to lose the patriarch of the family, regardless the age. His service to our country, his helping raise a wonderful family, and creating endless memories for all, this is his legacy. My mom passed away at 100 and it hurt as though she were a family you were blessed.
