My sincerest condolences to my cousin Jackie and family. I will always remember how Rick would tell us his clever and funny stories. He was a very kind person and we will all miss him. God bless him and all of the family.

Rick Wright was one of the most honorable, decent, trustworthy person I had the pleasure of knowing. He became part of my family when he married my cousin. He will be missed. God bless him and his family.

I had many, many sleep overs with Lori in middle school. My favorite memories of her dad, Rich, was him making breakfast on Sunday mornings. He made the best breakfasts - eggs, bacon, toast, hash browns, toast, etc. He showed me how to use bacon grease to make the eggs (a first for me at the time). I really loved those breakfasts with the Wright family. My condolences to the whole family. May Rich be forever in our memories. ❤
