Wright/Cromwell news

After losing my husband of 52 years on Oct. 1, I had to postpone his memorial service since I got Covid-19. Sometimes I wonder, “What else can happen?” But, as my mother always said, “This, too, shall pass!”

So, with that in mind, Bob’s service has been rescheduled for visitation 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, which will continue from noon until the 1 p.m. service Saturday, Oct. 22, all at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Wright. My sincere thanks to everyone who has sent cards, flowers and food. We are grateful for all these remembrances. May Bob rest in peace knowing there are so many caring folks in our lives.
