    Dear Juanita and Silver Family:

    Mervin and I were very sadden to hear of the demise of your friend Fletcher. However, during the demise of our family members, we have always found PEACE and CLOSURE in Hebrews 11-16, “Wherefore GOD is not ashamed to be called their GOD, for HE hath prepared for them a city”

    We are certain that your FAITH will SUSTAIN you and the Entire Fletcher Family
