    I lived by Taylor for many years, and he was always so helpful to his neighbors. I will miss seeing him working in his yard. Much love and thoughts to his family.

    My life was enriched by knowing you and having you, Deanie, and the children in my life.
    My parents adored and respected you so much. I feel I speak for the whole family when I say how much we love you and how much we will miss you.
    I am thanking God for allowing me to have known you and to have had the honor of having you in my lfe.
    God bless you and again, I wish you smooth sailing…until we meet again.
