Mrs. Margaret Wright and Family,
We express our sympathy to you and your family. The last time we saw Mr. Wright was at the Carter Singers Anniversary in 2011. It was always a joy to see him and he always made us laugh. Remember, we have confidence in knowing that God is able to heal the hurt and keep us in our saddness.
We Love You Mr. Wright,
Rest In Peace

To Mom Wright, Alan, Walter Jr., Greg, Wayne and Family,
What a joy to have had Mr. Wright in my life. We were the "Alexandria Gazette #2". I will truly miss him, but I know that he is resting with Father God now and I'll see him again. We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (2 Cor. 5:8) I pray for stength and comfort for the Wright's Family.

A singer, a door keeper, a man after God's own heart. I will miss you here on earth, but I know that you are rejoicing in the presence of the Lord as you hear Him say, "Well done, thy God and faithful servant,

First memory....seeing the 'Pumpkin Mobile' with him driving in the 70-80's memory I will never forget. He was an awesome uncle. One who bribe his nieces and nephews to SING by giving them peppermint candy. For the past 3 years I have alway made it my priority to fly and spend a day with him and my aunt as my PRE-FLIGHT business stop before flying over the US. Your going to heaven has left a void in my heart that

corrections on the first remarks.
When a good man died his lagacy lives on from generation to generations his lagacy continues to speak and never died. I was blessed to be a Christian son of Mr. Walter Wright sr. He was a father figure to me and my family. He died but he is alive in our hearts and also in paradise awaiting the rapture of Christ's church. The dead in Christ shall be raised and we who are alive will
