To Sharyn and Tasha: Lee meant the world to me. I can only think that God has an angel in his court. Lee is up there keeping everyone in line. He is about his Father's business. That was Lee and that why we loved him so much. Thank you for sharing him with the word. I love you both.

As a child I called Mr. Taylor 'Sir' because he was like a father to me. After I had kids he affectionately became Grandaddy Lee. Throughout my life I have often thought back to all of the great memories with Sir, Ma'am (Mrs. Taylor) and Tasha. He was a very wise, kind, calm and generous man. He was an overall amazing human being who will be missed greatly by all who were blessed to have known him! Sending love and prayers to everyone! Rest Well Sir!

Praying that God Grace and peace overtake you in this your time of bereavement Mrs. Sharyn, Natasha, and the entire Taylor family. I cant ever think of a time when Mr. Lee wasn't there to talkkkkkkkkk, listen, and explain everyday life situations to make you feel better. It seemed like he had experienced everything and he always had the best kind advice to give in my 15+ years of working for Him. He was there for me in the hardest two trials of my life and I will never forget that. I'm glad I had the chance to constantly share with him and Mrs Sharyn my love for the both of them that won't ever change. I will definitely miss you Mr . Lee Taylor

My condolences to the family of Mr. Lee. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have been able to meet such a wise and caring man. Whether it was through a joke, a testimony or simply a direct conversation, Mr. Lee used every moment as a teachable moment. I always walked away not only having learned something that contributed to my personal growth but also feeling encouraged and supported. Thank you Mr. Lee for the time you invested in me. I will forever be grateful.
