When we were both young we ran the thru the hills of Mahogany and loved life. How we are both older and some of us has traveled to our final destination where we won't grow any older. You have gone ahead of me and Dot. Don't be sad if we are sad because your not here. Dear brother rest in the arms of a loving Savior. Until we meet again I say love you.

Rest in Peace Uncle Sam. Even though I was not able to meet you, I loved you and loved hearing all the stories my dad would tell me of you and the conversations you would have. I hope you are having fun and loving being pain free in heaven with the rest of Taylor bunch.
