Daunte Wright's parents spoke on Thursday at his funeral service in Minneapolis. "The roles should completely be reversed. My son should be burying me," his mother, Katie Wright, said. Watch their remarks.
- Oh, I at up until 3:30 in the morning, so nervous and scared about what I was going to stand up here and say about my son.
- I never imagined that I'd be standing here. The roles should completely be reversed. My son should be burying me. Oh, my son had a smile that was worth a million dollars. When he walked in the room, he lit up the room. He was a brother, a jokester. And he was loved by so many. He's going to be so missed.
- Take your time, Katie.
- Well, I mean, I don't really speak much. But words can't even explain how I feel right now. That was my son. I'm going-- man.
- I remember when Daunte first became a father. His son was born at 28 weeks along. So he was premature. And the joy that Junior brought to Daunte's life was truly amazing. He was so happy and so proud. And he always said he couldn't wait to make his son proud. And he was just-- Junior was the joy of his life. And he lived for him every single day. And now he's not going to be able to see him.
- God bless you. Thank you so much.
