Yesterday would have been Taylor's 20th birthday. It is still so hard to believe that he is not with us anymore. I still find myself looking for him at family events. There will always be a void there.

I loved Taylor like my own. In reality he was my third cousin, but because our family is so close and Leslie is like a sister to me, he was more like a nephew.

I loved playing golf with Taylor. He would get so mad because I could putt better than he could.

Its was always a lot of fun anytime Taylor was around. Taylor loved my Chess Bars and always ask me to make some. I haven't made them anymore. Just doesn't seem right for him not to be here to eat them.

My girls loved him like a brother. He was only 3 months older that Amanda and they really grew up together. We have some great home videos of them all when they were little.

That smile!! Taylor had the greatest smile. It was huge even when he was a baby. He literally grew into his mouth.

We talk about Taylor at any family get together. There are always sad tears for a moment as we miss him, then comes the laughter as we talk about about the funny times with him.

I love you Taylor and miss you so much!

Please see Bama Girl's Sunday blog for a great tribute to Taylor.


  1. I miss him like there's no tomorrow!!!!

  2. I can't imagine how much you all miss him! Taylor was such an awesome kid, and a blessing to so many!
