To the Wright family,

Our sympathies are with you. We know it was not easy in the last year but she was very lucky to have a son and daughter-in-law who opened their home to her and enriched her life in the last years. I am sure she appreciated it. Words are not always the way that love is expressed but we know she loved you. Liz and Steve Coleman
