Willow Wright and Jo Ann Briggs
Willow Wright and Jo Ann Briggs

Willow Wright’s voice soars with pride and admiration when talking about her late mother, Dorris, with friend JoAnn Briggs. Willow happily recalls “cloud flying’’ with her mother at the controls, skimming the tops of the Rockies with her parents in their tiny Cessna and finally landing safely in California with her "heart in my mouth." The New York family’s trips across America are among Willow’s fondest memories. Life gives as much as it takes away, but in the end, Willow learns from her mother, “there’s nothing left but love."
