    Kandace and family: I am so truly sorry for your loss. I know those seem like meaningless words at a time like this, but, I really am here for you in any way you need me to be. Love you little girl, you are brave, you are strong and you can survive anything.

    Uncle James you will be missed greatly. I'm so glad I got to have you as part of my Taylor Family. Aunt Frances, you are precious and always have been there for everyone. I haven't always been able to be around you guys as much as I wanted in later life and since we moved to TN but you have always been in my heart. Love you guys and I pray God will put his loving arms around you during this time and give you comfort. Now Grandmammy has all her children back with her in Heaven and one day we will get to see them all again.........Love you!
