Celebrating the life of Beatrice Charlotte Brown Fletcher
Thank you for signing Beatrice Charlotte Brown Fletcher's Guestbook
Ms B was one of the first people me and my Wife met when we entered the military and came to South Carolina from, me from California and Susan from Pennsylvania. It was a pleasure and a blessing to have had the opportunity to work with her. Susan and I are saddened by your loss, but feel blessed that we knew this wonderful lady. It is the experiences with people you come across during a lifetime that make us. Ms. B. May God's Angels surround you and your Loved ones. Francisco and Susan Delgado

My sincere condolences to the family of Beatrice Charlotte Fletcher. Her death left your hearts heavy laden and sorrowful, but when you are feeling sad, think of the joy she brought to you during her lifetime. Death can disrupt the happiness and well being of a family. Some blame God for death, far from the Truth, as God considers death an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). Moving forward, you will continue to cherish her memories, while doing so, take comfort in Acts 24:15. Those resurrected will have everlasting life and never have to face death again. https://www.jw.org./end/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

I was a young airman at Shaw Air Force Base civil engineering in 1983 when I met Miss B. Last week I met in Milwaukee Wisconsin with a dear friend from Sumter I had not seen in over 30 years and spoke about Miss B; with her passing now I feel the she was saying goodbye to those of us who know her and touched Our Lives, it's mesmerizing. God bless her and may she rest in peace
