Fletcher was a wonderful friend to my son, Jason. Jason used to talk about Fletcher all the time. Jason loved him as much as he loved his own Grandpa. I know when Jason passed away it affected Fletcher as much as it did me. My heart grieves with the family, but Fletcher was ready to leave this earth. May you find peace in knowing he had a wonderful life and family. God Bless!
