Just now read of Sue's passing. I remember giving her a ride on the cross bars of my bicycle up main street in Shinglehouse. You might say that was a few years ago. Will say my Rosary for her and family

Aunt Reta Howard-Summers and family send condolences to all of Vic and Sue Taylor's children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We are not able to be there in person, but will be there in thoughts and prayers. Many special memories of the Taylor families and all our family reunions and holidays together. I thank God for the Christian heritage and the prayers of the Taylor families, grandma Taylor, aunts and uncles, and many cousins who have faithfully prayed for each other. One day, we who have put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ will be together again. What a glorious day that will be. Love you all.
