Seeing that Fletcher passed away made me sad then smile. I always appreciated you and Fletcher as good people, great customers and a positive personality. I smiled after I thought about Fletcher.
He is a great act.

I am saddened to hear about Fletcher. I am a waitress at Goldenlight cafe and had the pleasure of waiting on him and his group of friends that would come eat lunch. They were always so kind and a pleasure to wait on! The family is in my thoughts and prayers!
One of the sweetest men I ever knew!
Charlotte, I am thinking of and praying for you. I know this will be another difficult day to get through.
Fletcher or as I knew him growing up “Mr.Smith” was the nicest most engaging and considerate adult one boy could imagine. I grew up in the neighborhood with Mike, Travis and Miles. Went first through twelfth grade with boyhood friend and great guy Mike. At 63 years old I still think of Mr. Smith often. He will be missed by many just like me who grew up around him and his children.
We knew Fletcher from my working with him at Diamond Shamrock and from him being the round-up man for South Georgia Kids Inc.
We had not seen him in many years but thought of him often.
A finer man and friend could not be found.
Love from the Golightly family
Fletcher, what a kind-hearted, loving and caring Man! He loved Charlotte so much!
Fletcher and I used to walk at ANB, and I met Charlotte at ANB and we became friends at Bible Study! Fletcher used to wheel our daughter out to our car many times at BSA! He was like a Santa to our daughter Kayla! Always loving and kind! We will miss you Fletcher! Yet, we are Joyful because you are with our Lord and Savior Jesus and you are not suffering! God Bless Charlotte and their family! Love you! Dennis, Katie and Kayla Spear
