I send my heartfelt sympathy and prayers to Terry Taylor and his brother Jim Taylor. I had the pleasure of meeting Lyman and Marilyn Taylor in the late 70's through Terry. Lyman and Marilyn Taylor were lovely people, both gracious and kind; and Lyman always enjoyed sharing a good joke. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with Terry and Jim and the entire family.
