    ….we first met Taylor when we moved into our first house in Texas, the same weekend that his family moved into their house, right across the street…my boys and Taylor and Courtney, became best buds..they would go to Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor, or to the Deer Lease that Taylors dad, Chris had…He was always the sweetest, most polite little boy that I had ever met..I am so very sad that he is no longer with us, to continue to fulfill the dreams he had for himself, and his family…I know how proud his family was, that he was finally coming into his own and taking control of his life and his future…we will always remember and love you, Taylor…<3
