    This is perhaps one of the saddest times in my life. John and I were as close growing up as anyone could get. Being next door neighbors, same age, same class we went through our childhood together. From riding bicycles to school, to him riding with me to school everyday in my '57 Chevy. Every Monday, John would give me $1.25 for gas.(smile) When it was time for the prom, he rode with me both junior and senior years. During the summer we would spend many a night talking baseball from our bedroom windows. In 1969 after graduation, we went our separate ways to college but we remained close and always happy to see each other. One of my favorite memories is when he brought Brenda home for the first time and I just happened to be home. Both of them had countenances that shined like the noon day sun. I was so happy that he had found his soulmate. There are no words to express my grief yet because he has Jesus in his heart,and going to a better place, I have peace of mind. Though the fellowship may be broken, the relationship will always be the same. Thank you Jesus that we had each other growing up and we will see each other again on that day when Christ will come back for His own. God bless and keep Brenda and the children. Love Frank

  3. To the wife,children and family of my Class Mate, John Taylor. May our Father in Heaven give you peace that surpasses all understanding. May you feel His love surrounding you and the Holy Spirit comfort you. Know that we are praying for you in Ardmore. We have the best of memories to keep John's spirit alive in our hearts.

  4. Mrs. Taylor, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of my classmate John. You truly have my deepest sympathy. John was an only child and a brilliant young man. I remember, he graduated as the valdevictorian of the class of '69. We had a very small class, 12 girls and about 30 boys. John was a dear friend to all of the class of'69. He will be truly missed. I haven't seen John since we graduated high school, when everything is over and you are reminiscing over his beautiful life, would you please send me a recent photograph by e-mail? Love to you and your children; and remember, I will be praying for you all. Mrs. Tanya Alexander McCloud, class of '69, Douglass High School, Ardmore, Oklahoma…………

  5. First, I would like to apologize for my condolences being so late. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family at this time. When I received the news of John's passing, I was very saddened, but may you be consoled in knowing that God does not make a mistake and that He is there to see you through. My prayers are with you. I graduated in the class of 1969 with John, I will always remember him as the smartest and quitest guy in our class.
