Darryl, I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother. She sounds like a wonderful woman and mother. Praying for your family. Betsy Shanks, January 17, 2022 My condolences to the family. I grew up camping and riding motorcycles with the Taylor family. They also spent a lot of hours at our house with the adults playing 42 or Canasta and us kids playing Monopoly or Wahoo. Great memories. Dan and Dorothy were as fine of people as you could ever want to know. Terry Eubanks, January 13, 2022 I so loved Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Dan. Two of the finest people I have known. Prayers for the family.
Judy Taylor, January 13, 2022 My Great Aunt Dorothy was one of the most influential people in my life. I spent many mornings and afternoons in her company. We played games and drank coffee, and I listened to stories of memories long cherished by her. Now I can cherish the time I spent with her and be at peace knowing she is pain free. Though I only knew her for a fraction of her life, I will carry her love with me for the rest of mine. I hope she saves me a seat at the game table in Heaven. I know she will be watching over me and I hope I make her proud. Amber Rosenberg, January 12, 2022 Keeping the entire family in our thoughts and prayers.
