To the Family of our deceased classmate David Wright. We know that there are no adequate words, phrases or expressions, nor acts or deeds that can replace the void left in your lives; we do pray that God will give you strength and peace in the days ahead.

Whereas, it has pleased the Almighty God to take from our midst our beloved classmate, David Wright, We the members of The Howard High Class of 1968 bow our heads in humble submission and adoration to God who doeth all things well.

Whereas, the days of sickness, sorrow and pain for David are no more, he will be missed among us, but well accepted in the place prepared for him by our Heavenly Father.

When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready in heaven far above,
and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, please know I’m in your heart.
Be it resolved that the will of God has been done. May God grant strength to those left behind.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That a copy of this resolution is given to the Family and a copy be placed in the records of The Howard High Class of 1968.

Humbly submitted on this 4th day of August 4, 2020
