He was one of my favorite uncles. We Love Him and Aunt Carol So Much. Those Who Knew Him Had To Love & Respect Him, & It Was An Honor. HE Made Me Proud To Be A TAYLOR Descendant. He was the Hardest Working Man I ever had the Pleasure working with, as well as the hardest deer hunter I ever hunted with, Impossible to keep up with him, it was a days work. I am sorry for the rest of the familys loss. I am unable to keep a dry eye since I got the news. My Wife and I are Praying for Aunt Carol and All of the kids' loss, We Love You All.
