Dr. Wright delivered two of my three children (Dr. Goff delivered my middle child). I always had respect for Dr. Wright. His kindness and concern for his patients was something I will always be grateful for. I hope you can find comfort with the loss of him. May God bless!

I'm sorry this is late in getting to you, but I wanted to write something in case you get to see it. In 1969, I was living in Gulfport, Miss. when Hurricane Camille hit the gulf coast. My husband at the time was in the military and I was 8 1/2 months pregnant. The roads were wiped out and I had to return home. A nurse friend of my parents was very impressed with and recommended to me Dr. Wright as I needed to get a doctor fast. Dr. Wright and his partner Dr. Goff were just starting a new practice. I was one of their first patients, and the night I delivered Dr. Wright came in and checked on me practically every couple of hours. I was in labor for 13 hours. I know I thought I was special because one of them were checking on me all night. They were probably there for other patients as well, but I thought It was just for me. Dr. Wright delivered my son and every time I would go to see him for check ups, I would always remind him that I was one of his first patients. He always made me feel very comfortable. I will always remember what a special doctor he was. My deepest sympathy to your family.
