Godspeed Uncle Jim. You were larger than life itself, biggest smile, biggest laugh and always cooked the largest stack of pancakes for breakfast at the vacation house in Maryland. What I’ll miss most were those incredibly big bear hugs! With our deepest sympathy and love to Aunt Dolly, Susie, Brian, Robbie, their spouses and children, Ed and Terri Florentino.

Thank you Jim for a hundred memories. You took me under your wing while at fpma, guided and directed me and listened with patience to the hundreds of "what would you do" questions I asked at our many luncheons. Friends like you don't come around much in life so i will cherish your memory. RIP my friend.

Such as life is that I found my way To your doorstep 25 years ago and it was not long after that you included Sue and I as part of your family. Since then, you provided me a career and opportunity for success in a field of study that I would otherwise never have known.
You will forever be remembered for your kindness, generosity and contributions to your friends, family and the community that you cared so much about. Thank you papasan

I have been blessed to have met you and have learned many things from you. I only wish you had more time with us, we all at station 10 love and respect you for all the time we had together and the things you taught us not just with the fire service but as different people coming together and working together. There are not many people like you around anymore and I for one hope you know how many people are missing your knowledge, wit and wonderful smile.
My prayers are with the family as well, Dolly and whole family Jim’s passing suddenly caught you by surprise. I know he was growing tired and thought he would pull through it as he always has done. Now it’s his time to rest and will have our memories of a wonderful man, James “Chief “ Taylor
Rest In Peace Sir

I'm SO sorry pop-pop! For everything. I wish I was a better, stronger person. I wish I was capable of building bridges and fixing wrongs (both perceived and actual). I'm not at all! I've made a mess even worse. Please forgive me! I am sorry I wasn't there I pray you knew it wasn't because I didn't care

I will miss you, buddy. We always said to each other we were best friends, but as I told you, you are the brother I never had. As I reflect, we have done so much together. Weekend golf outings, we may not have played well, but we sure talked and laughed a lot. Twenty-five plus years with you, Dolly, Jeanne and me, going to dinners through out the years and the Pest Control Conventions every summer. People would always think that something was wrong if they did not see us together. The trips you and I took to Vegas and Biloxi were so much fun, although I was never as lucky as you. The memories of our times together, our friendship, are too many to list, but I will always carry them in my heart. Jim, I Love You.

I will miss you, Jim, with all my heart. I will miss your 'bear hugs', your barbecue dinners and playing the domino game 'Choo-Choo', which you, Dolly, George and I played together for the past 15+ years. I will miss the four of us spending the day together. I will miss spending time together at the FPMA Conventions. We will keep watch over Dolly - we love her! You are not just a Great Friend, you are Family. I Love You. Rest In Peace.
