Dag, Kevin. Denkend aan je vanochtend. Het is vandaag een jaar geleden dat ik je voor het laatst heb gezien. Lijkt eerder een heel mensenleven geleden dan maar een klein jaartje sinds je overlijden. Sindsdien is de wereld een stuk donkerder en kouder geworden. Het is in zoveel opzichten zo jammer en zo triest dat je het leven vroegtijdig moest verlaten. Ik doe mijn best wat van de goede herinneringen vast te houden. Als ik een heldere ster zie, ga ik ervan uit dat jij eraan schommelt.

Kevin, I know you can somehow hear me: I think of you all the time and miss you so much. This little candle is a reminder for everyone of your constant, brilliant light. You and Marlene BOTH are lights from heaven. Yes, you returned, and we are all still in unspeakable pain missing you here with us on Earth. The light you have still shines all around us, I see glimpses everywhere. Fortunately, Marlene is still here with us on earth and her light is as Divine as ever, shining resplendently and comforting me so much in ways she doesn't know from wherever she may be. Now, in her deep grief of losing you when she can't see her own light, she needs us. I pray for her, I cry for and with her, I reach out to her to tell her I love her very much. Light like hers is indeed so rare.

Marlene, you are beyond special, a unique gift to us all far beyond words, for your light, like Kevin's, is of the Divine, an angel from heaven. I knew this immediately when I first saw the two of you together, it was clearly obvious - two earth angels - I marveled and lost myself in the wonderment of it silently smiling with such relief. Let us help you and carry you through this surreal loss while you heal. Don't be alone, you are so loved. I don't have a number for you and I'm not sure if Kevin's cell is still operable, so if you could, PLEASE call me ANYTIME...please! 480-244-3827

One ordinary day in 1988 my life changed forever. It was the day I met Kevin Wright. A serendipitous moment that started me on the most amazing, most thrilling journey--my life as Kevin's wife. One look at those soft brown eyes and I was hooked. I couldn't get enough of him. I craved his every word, his every glance, his every waking moment. From the moment we met I knew we were meant to be together. We were together for the next 25 years and I was in love with him every moment of those 25 years. Kevin was the most remarkable man I've ever known. The depth of his brilliance was amazing. He had a wit that knew no bounds. He could charm the hardest of hearts. He had endless curiosity. He loved life. For 25 years I lived the most wondrous life with Kevin. There truly was never a dull moment with him. I am forever grateful Kevin chose me to be his wife. I don't know why he had to leave me when he did. The light has gone from my life. I will never again feel his hand hold mine or feel his arms hug me or feel the warmth of his body. I only know unrelenting sadness, loneliness, heartache, and despair. I will love you forever.

I knew Kevin when he was doing his externship at Miami Metrozoo. He was an amazing vet and personality! I also took my personal pets to him. He was the only one who got it right as far as my spaniel's ear infection. I spoke to Kevin years later when a good friend of ours passed away too soon as well. Unfortunately I was the first to call him and share this sad news. He ended up being the one to deliver the eulogy. I'm sure he and Damien Kong are sharing more reptile stories again. Kevin was always one of those folks that you remebered and remembered with respect and a smile. My best to his wife.

It's a month now that I know of Dr Wright's passing and like the writer below, the idea that he's really gone still just short circuits in my brain. Had the universe gone haywire that unthinkable day? Dr Wright is the last person who should have been taken early from this world, as he enjoyed it so much and spread that fun and joy around to everyone. I don't think I've ever seen writings in a condolence register like these here; or known another person who will be so missed by so many.

I've known Dr Wright for about 4 ½ years but I had the privilege of seeing him often during the last year, as one of my gerbils developed a dental problem and needed her teeth clipped every 10 days or so. He made me and my little pets feel important, providing expert care while regaling me with stories about his wide-ranging interests, everything from the Burgers' Zoo in Arnhem and the controversies around Zwarte Piet to Steampunk and Star Trek, to the bird or bunny he had just treated, or, on occasion, he would show me photos of interesting frogs and lizards and tell me about them, always coming with a smile, a hug and infectious enthusiasm. He often mentioned Marlene, and this last year I got to meet her. They were both with me the day we finally had to put little Mientje down.

I'm going to miss Dr Wright's invigorating presence, his encyclopedic knowledge, the ease of reaching him, the security of knowing he would always be there for my pets, all the threads of conversation so unexpectedly cut short, the elements of both whimsy and warmth added to my life.

It is my hope that I will not have to miss Marlene.

Dr. Wright, it has been five weeks since you passed away, and my eyes still tear up when thinking about it. I have had a very difficult time putting my feelings into words here. Losing you leaves a huge hole in the exotic animal community, especially in Arizona but also throughout the world. I know there will never be anyone else like you.

For over five years, you were the wonderful (and only) veterinarian who I trusted with my rabbits: Brinkley, Daisy, Penelope, Jackson, and Silkie. They have had some unusual and difficult problems, which other vets would not consider touching. You, however, knew just how to handle them with great knowledge, skill, and compassion. You were always pushing the envelope to find new ways of treating your patients and always eager to learn more in any way you could. You were also always more than happy to explain and show us everything you did, and you always responded quickly when needed. The first three rabbits have passed away and gone to the Rainbow Bridge, where beloved pets wait for the people they love. I hope you have had a chance to see them and many of your other patients again.

I have always called you Dr. Wright, out of respect for your amazing abilities and knowledge. However, you were more than just a doctor to me. I felt you were a friend who has helped me and bunnies through some very difficult times.

Marlene, my heart aches for you. I am so glad we were able to meet when Dr. Wright started his mobile practice. I know he loved working with you, and we loved seeing you and hearing the stories you would both tell. You were the light of his life.

My heart is broken. I will miss you dearly.Having known each other for almost 30 years now you are such an important part of my life.You will continue to be as I will strive to learn from what you have taught me about life. To love and appreciate everything around us, to be serious about what matters but not so serious to miss the humor in life. You would give me that energy whenever we got together and it helped me to have a better life. Thank you for that. We were drawn together by our passion for reptiles and amphibians and desire to contribute to their care, medicine and surgery.You were so passionate and knowledgeable about our profession and always willing to share that with everyone.You were a "Super Hero" in the field of avian and exotic animal medicine and the veterinary profession. Marlene was your soul mate and supported you allowing you to be you. I love her so much for that. Than you Marlene. Kevin, you will always be a true hero to me. Rest in peace my dear friend. I love you.

Kev. I miss you so much. You enriched my life in so many ways, more than I can ever list. I loved your absolute passion for the world and all its wonders. I loved that you never lost the joy and delight of a child for the miracles that surround us. I loved that you had a dream and followed it in your own unique way. I loved the oh so many times you made me laugh, quite often inappropriately. I loved the discussions we had about issues and ideas...sometimes a little heated but fascinating! You always left me thinking and sometimes even agreeing. I loved your stories, your boundless imagination, your free spirit, your wit, your intensity. I loved your kind and gentle heart, your generosity and empathy. I am in awe of all you accomplished, all the lives you touched. What a legacy!
Marlene, Kevin's love for all creatures great and small paled in comparison to his love for you. You were truly his other half. Sharing his life with you, who loved everything he loved--but who loved him most of all--was his bedrock and his joy. I will never forget when he first told me about you. He was amazed, delighted and so very happy. And that never changed. Thanks for being the center of his wonderful life, Marlene. We love you.
