This is Tagan Young his grandson, and I have to say he was a great man and he was my best friend I miss him really much and I am jealous he’s in heaven without us. He taught me a lot like how to fish, hunt, run a backhoe, split wood, drive a boat, run a chainsaw, swim, scuba-dive and lots of other things. I was swimming perfectly at 1 years old I knew how to snorkel at 2 years old and scuba-dive at 4 and it’s all because of him. My favorite memories with him was when we would squirrel hunt in the woods in Tennessee and I will always remember this quote from him “There are three things you never let someone borrow: your truck, your woman, and your gun.” I love him and can’t wait to see him in heaven.

Sincerely, Tagan U. Young
