The day I stood on that yard and was told by our Sgt that you had passed was a terrible day for NC Dept Of Public Safety ..esp Mountain View. Being your co-worker made me proud..You did such awesome work..Your pleasant smile and encouraging words daily made it easier to come to such a cold negative place to work. I kept for the longest time the last fireball you gave me in the Gatehouse! You were such a trooper and I will miss you always..Shoot yea! Love ya Wright..
