NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Speaking with Coyle Dalton Wright, otherwise known as C.D, it is easy to see just how much he loves Christmas. Each decoration in his Brentwood home on Trotwood has a special meaning. But this year, the holidays mean something different for Wright.

"Well it was my favorite time of year but this year has been hard," said C.D.

C.D. Wright lost the love of his life, Amy Wright, this past July. Amy had dementia. She also had a bad fall from two years ago that made matters worse.

"I did a lot of this work to just stay busy and to keep my mind busy," said C.D. "It's the hardest thing I ever had to experience in 57 and half years."

Nevertheless, C.D. decorated his home this year with the help of some neighborhood boys. He was able to keep the tradition going for Amy and for the very special bond they share.

C.D. and Amy won the Ann Chapman Holiday Lights Contest three times.
