“May tender memories soften your grief,
May fond recollection bring you relief,
And may you find comfort and peace in the thought of the joy that knowing your loved one brought...
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your loved one from your side.
When memory paints in colors true,
the happy hours that belonged to you.

Wight family, friends and loved ones, What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why he left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that he passed on, but that he lived. And that his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget! Jenna, the boys and I send all of our hearts to each of you! We love you and are so very sorry for the passing of such a wonderful man! ”
