I am so very sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible's promise at Acts 24:15, "There is going to be a resurrection." May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4SincerelyAmy Smith jw.org

Mrs. Wright was such a blessing to our family, remember so often when she would invite us to fish in your pond, it was a lot of fun for us and the children. Also, remember when I was fairly new Pastor at the church she joined 1st Baptist T-ville in the Fall revival of 1990. May God bless you Don and family and we will remember you in prayer.In Christ's Love Bro. Steven James, Debby and family.

Lot's of family already here and soon to be arriving for moms funeral. Being that I'm her son I have had so many thoughts and emotions running through my head it's just overwhelming. The one thing that is clear is the love mom had for family and friends and the love I have for family and friends. We have folks coming in from all over. Kentucky,Indiana,Florida, Wisconsin,Missouri,Virginia. Folks who want to come but can't for any number of reasons and I just want to say it's okay if you can't make it. Mom would have understood and so do Don and I and the rest of the family. We still love ya and we know that if your not here in person that your here in spirit, Thanks, Bob Talley
