To the family of Mr Wright,
I am so sorry for your loss. Mr Wright tried to help me find a home to buy about 30 years ago. We hit it off immediately. Later in years, I was having my house appraised and Mr Wright pulled in to my drive, I was so tickled to see him. Such a kind man.
I am so sorry for your loss!
