To the precious family of Mark Taylor..the man! There are no words to express how badly we feel for your personal loss. We feel a great loss with you. We had never met a man like Mark. I always told him he reminded me of my own Dad. There was not a man that was as my Dad until I met Mark. His honesty, integrity, piety, kindness, understanding, encouraging, guiding, respect...there are more words to describe Mark as we knew him. The kind of life he lived Blessed ours in so so many ways. One thing Mark always said is he lived his life so when he got called home it would be straight up. Well Mark, you have been Blessed with just that because I know the Lord will take you there. Rest in Peace dear friend. Our deepest Sympathy to all Mark's family. We love you all like family.
Gwen, Nick, and Chasity
I'm so sorry for your loss, you will forever carry his love for you in your hearts. Sending you all love, as I will be unable to attend the service.
My heart is so sad to hear about Marks passing. He always seemed happy and loved it when he would call me Auntie Shelly. He always hugged me to , which was so sweet. We were planning on going fishing last summer and talked about it several times, but it didn't seem to happen. Bet we would of had a lot of laughs. Hold on to all the wonderful memories, and let them guide you during this time of sadness. Love to all of you. ❤️
