    Please accept my sincere condolences to the Wright family. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Rita. The Bible assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken in heart. May your many great memories help you find peace and comfort as you go through the coming days. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
