May our Creator give you comfort during this time of sorrow. Many are emotionally and spiritually strengthen after reading the Scriptures to learn their love one is no longer suffering. (Genesis 3:19) Man was made from the dust and we return to the dust when we die, we do not have a spirit that lives on after.

Bianca,
I have fond memories of the times that Meshach and I shared growing up in the Lower 9th Ward. Although separated by time and space, our friendship was etched in our hearts. After after many years of not knowing one another's whereabouts, Meshach along with you, dropped in on my parents to locate me. As a result, Meshach and I had a great time hanging out.This was some time prior to hurricane Katrina. I will forever remember Meshach as my friend, Bruce; I will miss him.

May God bring comfort to you, my friend,and your family.

Sincerely,
Butch Cottrell

I still watch Designing Women & howl with laughter at the antics between Anthony & Suzanne... they make a bad day good & any other day better. You will be missed. To Meshach's family: You are not mourning alone.
July 23, 2014
Comic timing and hilarious mannerisms made his acting his art! I think he just played himself.... and that was awesome! "Black man.... Black man... Where do you come from?"... A true gift to the entertainment world. Thank you Meshach! Dixie Carter and Alice Ghostly are so happy to see you again. God Bless your family... And YOU!
July 21, 2014

Dear Taylor Family- I just wanted to give all of you, my deepest Sympathies, for the passing of Meshach. I grew up watching the show "Designing Women", I watched it only because Meshach, was so amazing, funny, had a great heart!! I will miss him, i will keep ALL of you, in my daily prayers. He was a great actor, a man with a huge heart, knew just how to make people laugh, forget their troubles for awhile. Meshach WILL be greatly missed!! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU, god WILL watch over all of you, help all of you, get through this sad time. God will give all of you, all the love, strength, to help you know always.... that Meshach IS in a much better place, that he is no longer suffering, having to fight anymore, with cancer.
July 03, 2014
So sorry to hear of the passing of Meshach Taylor. On many a dull or draining day, his wit and acting skill gave many a smile and a laugh, especially when he related his "prison" experiences. Through his character Anthony,he taught us that we don't let adversity get us down. We keep working on ourselves, not blaming others and outgrow our mistakes.
May God's loving care help you cope with your loss. Psalm 46:1

Death was not God's original purpose for us, it is something for which we can never be completely prepared. The Bible says: Time indefinite God has put in our hearts (Ecclesiastes3:11). God created us with the desire to live forever. He has opened the way for that desire to be fulfilled at John 3:16.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
July 01, 2014

Meshach was indeed one of the most outstanding actors on a comedy show from the 80's into the 90's. I really enjoyed him as Anthony on Designing Women!! He indeed acted with so many wonderful actresses and now he gets to join some of them once again in Heaven. I'm gonna miss him on Earth but, I know that he will still remain a great actor in the Lord's home in Heaven watching over us all.Thanks for all the hard work you had done Meshach and I'm sorry you went through a whole lot of pain through out the years with Cancer. Rest in Peace and God bless you Meshach and his family who are mourning the loss of such a wonderful man. Now Meshach can be with Dixie Carter etc.. love ones who had acted and are now in Heaven. Say hi to them while you go up the stairs to the Heavenly Gates!! No goodbyes cause we will meet again in Heaven. Your friend/fan Kate!!!!

My husband and I saw Meshach in LA at Hollywoood and Vine a few years ago. He was on his to way to a lunch appt, I stopped him & told him how I loved Designing Women and his character Anthony, so much so I purchased a DVD set. Mr. Taylor was so gracious, he even posed for a photo with me. Designing Women is still in my book, one of the top three sitcoms. He will be missed.

Our sympathy goes out to his family.

To Bruce's wife and children, our deepest sympathy. Bruce and I go back to the mid-sixties at FAMU as friends, (about fifty years). Though we had been in touch over the years here in L.A. I had not hit bases with him in the most recent of years, and was unaware that he was not well. I wish I had known, so as I could have visited him, for whatever support I could have given him in his last days. He is already being missed. One of the nicest friendships (was that of myself and Bruce). Special blessings to his Mother. God bless.
