Taylor was my work son at Canal Bistro. Even after he moved on to work in other restaurants we would try to run into each other occasionally. I loved and adored him from the minute I met him as a customer first , then as a co-worker. His spirit was kind, gentle, and loving . He made everyone around him feel loved, liked and important. My heart is broken that the world has lost a Love like his. Love and prayers from myself and his Canal Bistro family

Alsop Family~ I had the privilege of speaking with Taylor and interacting with Harper on only one occasion but Taylor's smile sure left a lasting impression. And, Harper was quite a happy, little rascal that day. I hope that time will help soften your sadness and beautiful memories will eventually outweigh your grief. I will make a donation to a local animal rescue in the memory of Taylor and in honor of Harper.
Thinking of you.

Taylor had a great spirit. I remember his smile especially when he was thinking about doing something he wasn’t suppose to. He was always helpful and considerate to me. He is gone way to soon. My sincerest condolences to Tom, Lisa and Karli.

Lisa and Tom, I am heart broken and so sorry for your loss. I will remember Taylor always. As he and Nick grew up they were good buddies. I remember the times I would bring him back over to your house when he was spending time with Nick. He loved it when I would ask him about swimming. I share you grief and can only tell you to look to God and pray that he is now in a better place with the Lord. God Bless you and your family.
