INTERMENT Historic Union Cemetery 730 Potomac Ave Bakersfield, CA 93307 Please Gather With Us for the Repast at: RISING STAR BAPTIST CHURCH 3421 Wilson Rd Bakersfield, CA 93309 Poem THERE'S A BRIGHTER DAY THAT'S COMING There's a brighter day that's coming And it's just around the bend. Where our sorrows, trials and heartaches, And all tears come to an end. Though I know it seems unlikely When we're lost in deep despair, And we feel our faith is weakening, When no answers come from prayer. Yet, that point of feeling helpless When our hopes are nearly gone, Often is the time God answers- After darkest night... the dawn! So hold on a little longer, Trust God's wisdom and His care. While you may not feel Him working, God is always, always there! Yes, a brighter day is coming. Oh, my friend, you soon will see When the clouds their work have finished, Sun will smile on you and me! -Beverly J. Anderson ECCLESIASTES 3: 1-4 KJV To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; CELEBRATING THE LIFE Albert Lee Fletcher April 24, 1956 - November 20, 2022 FUNERAL SERVICE Basham Funeral Care 3312 Niles St Bakersfield, CA 93306 December 22, 2022 at 1pm
