If there was one thing you would get from Charles, it was kindness. Oh and a big smile. Ok so 2 things. He was always consistent with those 2 things. Your kindness and your big smile will be missed along with all those many other wonderful things that you passed along the way to your family and friends. Your life mattered and impacted us and our family. May God comfort your family till they see you again in heaven.

I am so sorry to hear of Charles passing. I always looked forward to seeing him and Chris at tax time. I called him "Chuckles" because he was always in a good mood and joking around. Christine and Debbie know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Hugs and prayers.

Betty and I share our condolences with the Charles (Charlie) Edward Taylor family. Charlie and I were in ROTC at UT together and later attended Armor Officer Basic Training at Fort Knox, KY, together.
He and I discussed going to Officer Helicopter Pilot School, but I decided not to go. I only saw Charlie a couple times after that.
God bless you, Charlie!
