Wright Cromwell News

It was great to see my grandkids this weekend after not seeing them since November 2008. Dennis, Devon and Mandy Egge were here for a few days visiting after attending the funeral of their great uncle. They now live in Missouri, so it’s a long drive for them to come to visit. Dennis is now 17 and Devon and Mandy, twins, are 16.
I got a postcard from Joan Walli the other day and she reports that she had a stroke two days after returning from the trip she took to Washington D.C. on April 5. This stroke has left her paralyzed on the right side, but since she is left-handed was able to send me a note. She is in therapy three times a day and plans to return to Wright around May 1. We wish her a speedy recovery!
