    I hold all of you in my thoughts.

    Such a beautiful person, on the inside as well as the outside. The first time I met Mary was when Charley took me with him (before we married) to the Taylor family reunion in 1995. Several of the family members met us for breakfast the day we were leaving Kentucky. As we all hugged and said our goodbyes, Mary and I hugged and she whispered in my ear, “I hope you come into the family soon!” And, I did! A special piece of the Taylor family puzzle is missing now! Rest in peace, sweet lady! I love you!

    Sorry for the Taylor Family’s loss,praying for all.Wanda I am thankful you got to spend time with Mary before her passing.

    Mom,
    Words cannot explain the pain I still feel without you. I pray everyday to be able to see you once more in heaven.
    You deserved so much, but sacrificed everything for us. I wish I could have seen you more and not be deployed or away for the Army, but I can’t change that now.
    I visit you next to day every time I go back home. I don’t have people to talk to much, no one wants to talk to the “Army guy”. I retire next week and can only thank you for how you raised me to be strong to be able to complete 25 years.
    I miss you and will always love you!!
    Stacy and I are going to start a new chapter in our lives now. She misses you so much too. She was outside in the yard crying, saying that the flower bed where you and her “pulled weeds”, or painting the bathroom together, and all the other memories you made together while I was deployed.
    I love you always!
    Your son Brian
