Dakota S. Wright
March 28, 2012 - November 22, 2016
Dakota Skye Wright, 4, passed away tragically on Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Born March 28, 2012 in Hanover, she was a daughter of Joshua K. and Ginger L. (Morgan) Wright, both of Hanover.
Dakota was a very high energy girl with an infectious smile. She loved everyone and knew no enemies or strangers. Dakota would say hi to everyone she passed just to make them smile. Koda loved to sing and often woke us up singing Christina Perrys "Thousand Years". If anyone was sad, she would sing them "All of Me" by John Legend. Dakota loved Mickey and Minnie, My Little Pony, but Rainbow Dash was her favorite. Koda was a very smart child, we worked with her often. She was so excited to go to school in the fall and now she will never get the chance. She asked the other day "how many sleeps till school"? In which we responded about 300, she said "that's too long, I want to go now"; asking "how many sleeps" was her way of telling time, everything was how many sleeps till this or that.
In addition to her parents, Dakota is survived by five siblings, Natalie Meckley of Hanover, Dillon, Savannah, Alexandria, and Madison Wright, all of Benson, NC; maternal grandmother, Ruth Ann Morgan and her companion, Peter Pandeles of Hanover; maternal grandfather, Ralph "Corky" Metz; paternal grandparents, Tammy L. Horton of Linden, NC and Keith Wright and his wife, Lydia of Fayetteville, NC; an aunt, Jessica Brewington of Linden, NC; four uncles, Paul Metz, Cristopher Metz of Lake Havasu, AZ, Michael Morgan of Fayetteville, NC, JT Robinson of Linden, NC. Dakota is also survived by many other loving extended family members and friends. Dakota was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Lawrence Morgan, Jr.
