I know you’re are at peace my friend and will be missed.
Remembering those days of working the Festival, going to Cracker Barrel, getting together for the Christmas Parade, visiting in Avon Park, phone calls to check in, or just stopping by the Funeral home to visit. Lately, some days were tough on you but you never complained, you were a true Angel.
I know God has his arms around you and you feel not pain or discomfort, only joy.
John, Bryan and Ed all know you will be watching over them and their families. Your memory will not fade, only grow stronger.

The Lovely Barbara Taylor
Fall Festival tickets
Quaker Factory
Cracker Barrel
Bath and Bodyshop
And a quirky cat named boulevard
These are things that will remind me of you BT.
I had not been in a restaurant since Covid. I wanted to have the first time being in a restaurant with someone i liked.
I am glad my first day back at Cracker Barrel was with aunt sandy and you.
I am sorry they didn’t have what you two wanted on the menu…but we still had a good time.
I also want your family to know you would speak of them with love and pride. Tennille was always there helping you along with John. Your grandaughter’s selling their pigs. (I still laugh. Sorry.) Your sister and nephew whom you love and were worried about.
And Ed. Simply put, the man you love.
Gonna miss someone else to talk to when aunt sandy falls asleep watching tv.
I know you are pain free now. Please pray for those of us still stuck here pluggin on. Oh. And maybe you can get Cracker Barrel to change its menu back.
Miss you.
