Stories

He was a legend, father, son, husband, and guardian to many people. Always there when we needed him and never told me anything wrong. He made me out to be the strong woman I am today. He has influenced many in his lifetime, and at the same time he was selfless. Always caring for others and teaching his kids the ins and outs of life. We are all successful, thanks to my father. I am sure he is looking down on us and smiling. I continue to live my life with the morals my father has embedded in me, and forever I will. His life lives through me and all he had an influence on. My father is my guardian angel. Love you daddy, your oldest daughter Kasey. Rest in heavenly peace.

The school nurse had called and said they were about to call the ambulance, because his daughter had pneumonia and bronchitis, and couldn't breathe. He was there in less than five minutes. He said, "I am taking my baby home. She doesn't need a damn ambulance." They raced home. He took her home, gave her medicine, and she layed on his tummy, while she was on the nebulizer. He said, "Don't cry, I watch you fight then, and you ARE going to fight now." While he told her the story of her birth again and how we must fight, cause: "I am gonna tell you this and I am gonna say it one time- so you better listen:"we Taylor's are fighters, and survivors. We don't have time to be sick. Its not doctors and hospitals that heal, Kisha....it is the mind and the heart, and faith in God that really heals. I was suppose to of been dead 20 years ago, and I am still kick'n. What does that tell you?" He stayed up with her all night, while they both watched the "Stargate" Marathon. The next morning his daughter was breathing fine.

Hey there Joe, this is your oldest son. You can't believe how much we miss you. You have two beautiful daughters who love you to death and each with their own beautiful children. You have two grandsons who act just like their grandfather, strong and proud. It is really strange not to pick up the phone and not be able to talk to you. I always remember our talks and I remember how you taught me to endure the pain no matter what. My boys talk to me and all I can do is think, i know how much you would be proud of them. I hope you are proud of me, i get up every morning missing you. I know we will meet again, I miss you, I love you, I'm proud of you.

I remember Preston Taylor ..... the huge heart ... the giggles, no ... the chuckles! I remember my brother being one who would talk to anybody, help anybody and stand up against anybody. I remember how he wouldn't die because he had to live. I remember how much he loved his family and how much he would do anything to make sure they were okay. I remember how this ole man thought he was still 18 and use to run behind his bride...smiles. I remember my brother with a smile and I miss him .... just like you guys .... I remember how proud of all of you he used to be ...

Hi Catherine, I do not have Facebook but can you add this for me: We shared the same hometown, school bus, church and childhood memories. One day, we will share the same heavenly home with our parents. I believe that your spirit surrounds your siblings and family each day. Your stay on earth was short, but your memory lives on Preston. You are missed! Evelyn Perry, Yale, VA

Where do I start and what is there not to remember? Let me share my walk with Uncle P, with you all! If you didn't get to be in his presence or spend quality time with him then you have not seen what it's like to experience unconditional love. Not to say that you may not know of someone but they are very far and in between. Our Father which art in heaven invented unconditional and his only begotten son displayed this act for the world to witness. And after this great act he commanded little angels to teach this love, show this love and you will be able to do miracles that you have seen him do. Uncle P was one of these angels. Jesus spoke these words: "But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. 32Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then the King will tell those on his right hand, 'Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. 36I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.' 37"Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink? 38When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?' 40"The King will answer them, 'Most certainly I tell you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.' 41Then he will say also to those on the left hand, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry, and you didn't give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; 43I was a stranger, and you didn't take me in; naked, and you didn't clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn't visit me.' 44"Then they will also answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn't help you?' 45"Then he will answer them, saying, 'Most certainly I tell you, inasmuch as you didn't do it to one of the least of these, you didn't do it to me.' 46These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." If you know Uncle P like I know Uncle P then you know that his actions were righteous towards his fellow people and his love was that of the sheeps that Jesus mention in this teaching. For I was all those things that was listed and Uncle P didn't hesitate to come and help my need. He calls me "Shake It Fast" and I live up to that name and no matter what adverses I come up against, I will "Shake It Fast!" He has opened his home and his heart to total strangers, even though they were my friends and he knew them not. He offered them shelter, food, clothes, water and counseling. When he took me shopping for my college refrig or snack closet he took my friends along too on his own free will and told them to get what you want. In other words what you need because all I want you to focust on is school. He didn't do this one time but he did it everytime he came to pick me up from school out the blue to make sure that I wanted for nothing. I could talk to him about anything and go with him anywhere, he was never judgemental. He was the father I needed at that time and God made him suffice. I wanted my friends to see his light as it shined on this world and whoever was in his presence. To lose him was to understand him. For I have learned that eventhough I was unable to face the facts of his departure from this earth, that he never left me at all because when you see me, you will see him. Whether Im at Wally-World or at church. "Shake It Fast" but watch ya self aka Tion Jaun Pri

love u daddy. think about u everyday, u are my angel....

The Van-Co-Pilot

I miss you dad. He took care of his van, washed it almost everyday, and took pride in his rims. He always said I was his co-pilot when we'd go to the store in the van. Sometimes he would say to "stay at the house...or "Kisha...get out the damn car"...but he really didn't mean it, cause if we weren't laughing...we'd be fussing. We get on each others nerves(lol).We'd fuss over the radio stations and we would pop each others hands. Then he'd dance, while driving, not caring who saw him. If it was serious....we'd hit the van and go for a ride and talk, and best believe by the time we got home....the problem was resolved. Dad was a "problem-solver" like no other.

Sitting here wondering how many times the Lord has had to say ... sit down! Preston over there in the corner of that cloud because you called Him .... Big Daddy! How many times did I tell you not to say that and now you're in trouble! You never would listen brother! You were a character for sure! And what's the rest of the family doing up there bro? Are they trying to shhhhhhh you and tell you to stop pushing your way to the front of the worship line? ..... lol .... I know you're acting a fool dude!
