Just learned of Sharon's passing. I met her once when we became aware of our family connection. Her father was a cousin to my grandfather. She and I shared a lot of family history and I enjoyed getting to know her and learn about her side of the family and or kinship. I will miss corresponding with her. She was a nice lady and cousin. Just wish that I had gotten to know her better. William Fred Wright, October 4, 2012 Dear Matthew and Nathaniel, I send you my deepest sympathy. Your mother and I never met, although we talked on the phone, and sent family history to each other. James G. Wright and my grandfather, W.W. Wright were brothers. Patsy P.
