My dear sweetheart, I love you.
I always have, and I always will.
My love is eternal;
Our love will be everlasting.
I miss you.
You are strikingly beautiful.
There is profound beauty in your soul.
I knew the first day I met you.
Your beauty, your grace and your virtue have filled my life with joy…
You have blessed my life forever!
Our family – children, grandchildren and future posterity –
Continue as a testament to your goodness and love.
I thank God we are bound together in love
Through eternal covenants sealed by Priesthood authority
I find peace in this truth.
Christ is the Center of our Home.
He Stands at the Apex of our Relationship.
We love the Father; and we love His plan.
We revere and hearken to His prophets;
We strive to hold fast to the iron rod.
As one of God’s valiant daughters,
You are of infinite worth, infinite potential, and infinite capacity.
As a son of God, I was given to you to bless, protect and provide.
You leave mortality with a legacy of faith, courage and strength
It will never fade.
I will live to honor your name.
You are an elect lady
From your divine nature flow
And Love
Thank you for your smile, your laugh, and that look you gave me from time to time,
(You know the one I mean)
Thank you for your affection.
Thank you for our family.
Thank you for your music that always makes my heart sing.
Thank you for your Christlike acts of service,
You love and are beloved of family and community
I will live the balance of my mortal journey
that I may always hold your affection.
I can never forget you.
I hold your memory close.
May the Lord hold you safe in His arms of everlasting love,
Until we embrace again.

Sherie Porter Wright

1954 ~ 2012

After a courageous battle with cancer, Sherie Porter Wright, 57, passed away peacefully in the loving arms of her sweetheart and surrounded by her loved ones on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at her home in Peterson, Utah.

Sherie was born on April 22, 1954 in Provo, Utah to L. Aldin and Shirley Porter. The eldest of six children, Sherie attended Ricks College and, after serving faithfully in the Anaheim, California Mission, she married Kelly W. Wright on January 4, 1978 in the Idaho Falls Temple.

The quintessential nurturer, Sherie's greatest joy in life came from teaching and loving her children and grandchildren. She delighted in service to her family, friends and community, especially through her work with the Morgan High School Volleyball Team and on the scholarship board. She loved to read, treasured education and believed that happiness and achievement in this life both require hard work.

Sherie manifested her deep love for our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His gospel as she daily went about doing good. No matter the pain or sacrifice, she remained dedicated to doing the Lord's will, always seeking to bind wounded hearts and lift up heavy hands, even when weighed down with her own temporal cares. She found great joy through family history work and serving in the temple.

She is survived by her eternal companion, Kelly W. Wright; her seven children and their spouses, Sara Anne and Aaron Fausett, Michael and Diedre Wright, Matthew and Michelle Wright, Thomas Wright, Mark and Jacky Wright, Amanda and Ethan Wilford and Elder Timothy Wright; her eleven grandchildren, Caleb, Elisabeth, Isaac, Palmer, Lucy Belle, Katelyn, Mayli, Madilyn, Juliet, Emma and Ian; her parents, L. Aldin and Shirley Porter; and her siblings and their spouses, Lorie and Ed Watts, Julie and Ralph Powell, Leslie and Blair Scoresby, Brent and Melissa Porter and John and Connie Porter.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 12 noon at the Morgan North Stake Chapel, 2755 W Old Hwy Road, Morgan. A visitation will be held Wednesday, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Walker Mortuary, 45 West 200 North, Morgan and Thursday at the Morgan North Stake Center from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Interment, Peterson Cemetery.

We are grateful for the outpouring of love from the community and the many offers of help and service we've received. In honor of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend, we invite those who wish to help to do as Sherie would and find someone who is lonely, downtrodden or in need of cheer and bless their life with acts of Christlike service. Also, in lieu of flowers, those who wish are invited to donate to the Temple Patron Fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Charming and Delightful Miss Sherie (texting)

Mom goes in tomorrow for broncscopy to check out her lungs they want to make sure there are no obstructions to the bronchial tubes. If there are, they may try and remove them. I’ll keep you posted thanks for your love, faith, and prayers. You are awesome you mean the world to us :) ly Feb 8 3:24 PM

Mom is hanging in there. Oxy at 93 at 7 liter. Waiting for docs. She’s a tough cookie :) ly Feb 9 7:52 AM

They just told us the broncoscopy for bear will be at 3 PM Feb 9 8:53 AM

They found one tumor that is blocking the left lower bronchial tube. The right lung looks good. A culture taken will tell them the best antibiotic. They will get her better and then remove the tumor. And on with treatments… We are so encouraged! Thank you for your love, faith and prayers! ly :) Feb 9 4:28 PM

Mom passed the night well. Her stats are good, her spirits even better. We are in a wait-and-see holding pattern. I’ll let you know when I know anything more. But we both wish you a marvelous day…. TGIF :) ly Feb 10 8:18 AM

February 23-March 1

On the 23rd I left Murray Hospital and was transported by ambulance to the Promise Hospital located in LDS Hospital in Salt Lake. Promise Hospital is an acute care rehab hospital that is going to help me get stronger, get radiation treatment to my lungs, and finish my antibiotics from the PCP. We were admitted late Thursday to a shared room. On Friday I was able to get my first treatment of radiation. And how evaluation for physical therapy. Feeding tube was still in, but I was working hard at eating so I could get it out. Weekend went by okay. No new improvements. I was fortunate enough to get a treat basket from the Peterson Ward with a lot of cards and goodies. And a beautiful quilt made by a good friend Sandra Jensen. That cheered my spirits and lifted me. On Sunday night I was able to get my PICC line out, and we were also able to hear the Peterson Ward Sacrament meeting and were able to recieve the sacrament here. Monday we had our second treatment of radiation. The wonderful Newton family came and sang to me and brought me some yummy cookies. We met with the pain doctor to try to put a nerve block in to help with the pain that we thought was coming from the tumor in my back, but it turns out it was a pinched nerve. Which was a miracle. The doctor gave a steriod shot and that help to relieve some of the pain. On Tuesday the feeding tube FINALLY came out! Wahoo! They continue to keep me on a low sodium, renal diet. Which is very bland, but it is ten times better than having the feeding tube in. This whole week I have been working with phyiscal, occupational, and respiratory therapy to help get me stronger. I will finish my antibiotics tomorrow for the PCP, and I just finished up my fifth and final day of radiation for the tumor in my lungs. I am currently on 4 liters of oxygen and keep my oxygen saturation above 90 percent. Thanks for the love!
