  1. JoEtte, Veronica, Eric and Sam, Carey and I are thinking of you all during this time. Our heart goes out to you and your family. Mr. Fletcher was such a nice man to me and always went out of his way to say hello when I came to visit! I will miss him.

  2. Our sincere sympathy for your loss. I remember Gary during the 1950s playing outside Mommom’s. Our families used to go fishing and crabbing together. I believe Gary was playing the guitar back then. I have fond memories of our childhood. God bless his family. Paul & Marilyn Sedelmeyer
