So sorry to hear of Tom's death. Ive known Tom for many years with Faye by his side! I met them through Elizabeth Murphy(cousin) of mine. She was a life time member of the Eastern star and I grew to Love Tom and Faye through her. I would go by and visit them in the Nationwide office in Louisburg often! God be with you all through this trying time!

He will truly be missed. It has many years since we have seen him but he was once our insurance agent (and one of the best). Always smiling, always helpful. Knowing he will be with his wife gives us comfort and a happiness of life ever after. Praying and thinking of those left behind at this time. RIP

Tom and I were good friends all during school at Franklinton High School and we both graduated together in 1951. All of those years, I never knew of a cross word that he had with anyone and always had good words to say about anyone he met with his smiling face. Tom will be greatly missed by all of his classmates as we kept in touch with each other since graduation. The same goes for all of his friends in Louisburg and Franklinton as well in the surrounding communities throughout Franklin County. And speaking on behalf of the graduates of FHS in 1951 who are still living, we offer our deepest condolences to all of his family and the many friends that he had. Tom, we love you and will miss you, however we know that you are now in a better place without further suffering, and especially reunited with the love of your life, Faye. May God bless your family during this time of sorrow and we grieve with each of you. Bill Hagwood

What a" Beautiful Obituarie" he was everything you said and more. We loved him and Aunt Faye so much, to me they were so perfect together and now they will be together Forever !! What a" Glorious " Christmas they will all have in Heaven together. Maybe Uncle Tom can even find some Beignets, he always loved them and ate himself sick when he visited New Orleans. Rest in Peace Uncle Tom till we all meet again. You are going to have your hands full with all those wonderful Women you went to meet in Heaven you took care of all of them on earth and now they have their special"Angel'in Heaven with them.

True Love is "Eternal" and that is what Tom and Faye Wright Had. It saddens me and many others that they are not here with us on Earth, but now in Heaven once more "together" again Celebrating Christmas. God Bless the Wright Family.

Tom was not only a great friend of mine but also one of my favorite Brothers in James A. Johnson Lodge. I first met Tom and his Wife at Verizon where I work and they quickly became great friends! All in all, he was a phenominal human being and a man that I looked up to.

To all of his family, you all have my deepest sympathy and prayers!

As I sit here today with a heavy heart, I know you are in Heaven, hugging Faye, so tight, along, with your beloved siblings, Mama and Papa and other family. I will truly miss you with all my heart. I think back at all the fond memories, the New Years at the Stone farm, all the card games and food. all the jokes we played. I love and miss you and Faye, but would not change a thing so until we meet again, for now, I say 'See you later'.
