    Our condolences to the family of Garland Fletcher. I met Garland in Spokane WA and we hunted bears and raccoons with our dogs. Then he retired from Kaiser and moved back to Arkansas. We were sad to hear of his passing.
  2. Shar'ree Lewis
    Grandpa thank you for the love you gave and the life lessons you taught so many of us. We have so many memories to share and laugh about because of you. Growing up in church, experiencing hunting, learning to garden and taking care of the chickens and dogs are all stories I am proud to share with my kids today. I learned my strong work ethic from you grandpa. I love you.

    I am sorry to hear about preacher Fletcher, I have been in his home many times with my Uncle Robert Harrell Martin. He was a fine man praying for all of you during this time and rejoicing that Preacher is in the presence of his Saviour.
