Taylor was always cracking jokes, smiling and lighting up a room with his infectious personality.  He befriended so many and was fiercely loyal to all he loved.  He had a special gift or quality about him that made you feel special and loved from nearly the moment he met you.  Taylor will be remembered for his laughter and contagious smile he brought to any room for others and the memories he leaves behind with all of us.  He will continue to be forever in our hearts, until we meet again.
