It's so hard to say goodbye! So many fond memories of Sis Taylor. One of our Mother/Grandmother's best friends (Sis. Lane). We will never forget her sweet personality but stern demeanor. Never raised her voice but did not play! The fried fish, chicken and Apple pies...we can still smell and taste it right now! When one got in trouble, we all got punished, yep, even us and we were not one of her biological kids, but was hers when we were in her presence. Out of all the children she had, her love still stretched to other families like ours. Rest in peace until we meet again.
