I met Mr. Taylor back in 2010 working as a Loss Prevention Agent for Ross Dress For Less in the Summer Avenue Kroger Shopping Center. He was a patrol Security Officer working for G4S at the time. We immediately hit it off as he would do his rounds from store to store in the shopping plaza but would frequent Ross regularly to talk to the young ladies working in the store. Our friendship continued even though I later resigned from Ross and he often expressed that he considered me like a son. I would visit and talk to him regularly as we laughed and reminisced about joyful times. I'm going to truly miss him and I can't imagine how his family must be feeling at this moment because I too am deeply hurt by his passing. I just wanted to send my condolences and love to his family and friends and I will continue to enjoy our many memories and laughs together. Thank you for being a Father figure and mentor to me when I needed it the most. Love always your God Son Willie.
