Grammy was a ray of light in all of our lives whether she met us only a few times or knew us for our whole lives. From Daniel: “Grammy accepted me and Isabella with open arms and treated us like family from the start. She was a wonderful lady and will be truly missed.” From the kids: “We love and miss you Grammy”. From Megan: Grandpa, and Uncle Pat, Jon and Family, Kerry & Family, and Brian & Family, we love you all so much and so sorry for this devastating loss. I can’t find all of the words I want to say, but I pray for healing and peace over you all. Grammy was a unique and loving spirit who always wanted the most out of family time. From her rotel dips, yummy lasagnas, pizzas & pepperoncinis, beach trips, late night talks, soap opera tv sessions, collection of Bubba cups, adorable crocs, cozy blankets, Clemson Tigers, and especially the love she has for her family she is going to be so deeply missed. We love you Grammy Bright. Thank you for the many years of loving and lasting memories!
