To the Family,
We didn't get to spend much time around Billy. That's the way life goes, much to often.
We do remember the events, celebrations, of simply being in the Wright places, at the right times.
I probably didn't thank him for his service to the country. I am now. Thank you.......
I know he will be missed by all.
Our thoughts and prayer are with the Family during these times of bereavement.
David & Elizabeth Wright
