    Aunt Estelle and my cousins, Uncle Duane was a favorite uncle of mine. I was always glad that Aunt Estelle brought him into our family. He eagerly accepted us all and helped take such good care of Grama Taylor. He will be in my memory always. You all continue to be in my prayers. Love you all!

  7. Friend of Dad’s from 50 years ago. Knew him as Art. Played golf, went to the Knights…. I babysat his first child…. He had adult braces and smoked unfiltered cigs. Had not seen him in years. Rip.
