To all my CID friends I want to thank you for your cards, prayers, e-mails and phone calls during GG's illness and death. She loved her CID friends and the CID in general. She had a beautiful service and rests in peace at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery. Once again thank you.

Don, my heart-felt condolences to you and your extended family. While I never met "G.G.", it's apparent that she was truly a gifted and wonderful person. God be with all of you. Carl B.

I never had the honor of meeting GG Wright, but I know she was the love of Don Wright's life. Chief Wright and I were in Korea together assigned to the 2nd CID in 1971-72, and anyone who has been on a short-tour knows how the Agents get to know one another -- and share feelings. I know how much Don loved and missed his loving wife. Don and GG's true love for one another has grown and lasted over 50 years -- married 2 months shy of 50 years. GG was a very important member of the CID Family and all Agents who passed through Ft Hood CID. My deepest and most sincere condolences to my dear friend and fellow Agent Don Wright and his family. Heaven is a better place after today. Rest in Peace GG.

Chief...Janie and I send out deepest condolences. Janie always enjoyed spending time with her at the CID wives gatherings while we were stationed at Ft Hood.
