Heartfelt prayers to the Taylor Family. Dr. Taylor's gift was a true blessing to everyone and his legacy is eternal. Rest in God's peace... the ultimate freedom.

My prayers go out to Mrs. Theodora Taylor and family. Dr. Billy was such an inspiration to me. I remember hearing him play "I wish I knew how it would feel to be free" on the radio in Philly as I was growing up. We were poor but my mom bought his album. I also bought the sheet music and taught myself how to play this song almost wearing the grooves off the vinyl record. Even though I never met Dr. Taylor he has been with me throughout my life. He has been a quiet, talented force spurring so many on. As I play the beginning and ending of my favorite song I thank God that He gave us Dr. Taylor and that you and your family shared him with us. The world is so much richer for having had his talent. The scent of the rose is enhanced as the tears we shed fall on its petals. Dr. Taylor will always be dear to my heart.
Sincerely, Avis A. Shaw (Morrow, GA)

I saw Dr. Taylor when he came to Peoria to play with Ramsey Lewis. He was a last minute sub, but he was better than anyone else could have been. My mom, dad, husband and I were true Dr. Taylor fans.

A true gentleman and a class act. I will miss hearing his music and his insightful commentary. May he rest in peace.
