Not sure what to say?

Tootsie was one of my very best friends at Lorenzo. We spent lots of fun times together. She could drive and I couldnt so she would come get me and we would Cruze the main streets of big Lorenzo. Not sure Tootsie would want me to tell this but I know she would still laugh about it , when we would go cruising she had cigarettes ( not sure where she got them) but we would try to smoke them, I hated them and every time we would come to a place to turn around I would open the door and spit. I...

Tootsie was such a good friend all through school in Lorenzo! Such fun times at her house - Henry & Harriet were always such great hosts! She will be missed

I truly loved my friend Tootsie! Many hours spent solving problems, laughing and playing games around her Mom's table when Tootsie and Owanda would come home for the weekends and holidays....go to Roswell and do the same at Tootsie's. Many memories of my sister Kay and Tootsie on their horses and riding in the grand entries of the many rodeos every summer. I spent hours in the backseat of the Taylor's 19556 or so Buick as Kay and Toots would ride up and down main street in Lorenzo..they...

I was her student at Goddard High School in 1977-78 for senior English. she cultivated in me a love of reading, writing and appreciation for good writing that I have never lost and has GREATLY enriched my life. I had the joy of being friends with her cousin Karen Snow from Lorenzo and that too has been a blessing.

Thanks, Tootsie! You will be missed!

I lost touch, as we often do with those who taught us the most, and was unaware that she was battling cancer. I hope that her suffering was brief. I'm sure her beautiful spirit kept her going and inspired many, as it did through teaching. May God take her to his breast and welcome her home, and soften the grief of those left behind. She will be well remembered by many, especially...

I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Taylor's passing. She was a great influence in my life. I took every class she had because she was my favorite teacher. Rest in peace Ms. Taylor.
