Mrs. Fletcher and my mom, Dorothy Clayton, were great friends. They were both gorgeous women and shared in common a large brood of kids, including a set of twins. When I was little, Mrs. Fletcher would stop by our house to visit and I would ease drop on their girl talk. I loved hearing their jokes and laughter which literally exploded from the kitchen table. Mrs. Fletcher's visits were some of the rare times that I saw my mother let down her hair and enjoy her youth. I am so grateful she had a friend like Mrs. Fletcher who was full of spontaneity, fun, and enthusiasm. May she rest in heavenly peace.
