Will never forget the great times at our house when the whole clan would get together. The card playing was especially fun! Uncle Bill was the first person to put a golf club in my hands and I still enjoy golfing to this day and think of him. Will cherish all the memories.
Love, Pat, Janet, Gary, & Family

To the entire Wright family,
We really enjoyed watching the video. The pictures showed a man who created a very loving home for his family. He left his family with many wonderful memories.

Dear Carol,
So many wonderful memories of times spent with you, Bill, and your girls, at Central Sq. Cong'l Church are flooding back to me tonight. But I know how you must be suffering in so many ways. Dick passed away in January with Lewy Body, after having been ill for 5 years, and finally in a coma, but there always were stories of the happy days with dear Bridgewater friends to bring a smile. They are at peace. ( Marie Nelson, Middleboro, Ma.)
