Dwight Eugene Wright Obituary

Ashland Clipper, April 14, 1927




Dwight Eugene Wright, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Wright, was born May 13, 1926, and lived to be ten months, and twenty eight days of age.  His life had been despaired of several different occasions, but he seemed to be stronger than was thought, and just as it seemed as if he stood a fair chance to overcome all set backs, he died suddenly on the 11th day of April, 1927.

"Suffer little children to come unto me."  He fought a good fight, but could not live here, however we know where he is today.  Besides his parents and three sisters, Dorothy, Naida and Betty Jean, there are a number of relatives and sympathetic friends who mourn the loss of the departed babe.

The funeral service was conducted at the Baptist Church by Rev. David B. Jones, the pastor.  The text used was from the Gospel of Mark X:14.  "Suffer the little children to come to me."  The hymns were sung by a quartet of young men.  Two girls and two boys carried the casket, while two girls went before and two followed.  A great many flowers were sent in by sympathetic friends.  The body was lovingly placed in the grave at the Ashland cemetery on the afternoon of April 12, 1927.
