Mr. DOT was by far the
most chivalrous man I have ever dated. He knew how to court a lady in the most thoughtful, sweetest & respectful manner - a true gentleman. You will always be in my heart, David Owen Taylor.
RIP sweet angel x.

If Mr. DOT was only one thing, it was a loyal friend. If you were his friend he would do anything for you. (Just don't get into any "BEEFS" with him.) One of the last things he did in this life was to go to his bank, get a check registry and mail it to us just because we asked if he had any lying around his office. We sent him a thank you card with a sticker made from his text emoji, but I don't think he ever received it. (We printed a sheet of the stickers out so we could give it to him when we saw him again at the end of Sept.) Well, thank you Mr. DOT. For everything. But most importantly, for being you.

Where does one begin to recount all the good, and somewhat crazy memories, that we shared with DOT? Often he was there with a corny joke or action that would make us all laugh. He was a friend, a story teller, a co-worker with a big heart and beautiful soul. I will always remember him and the great times I shared with him. I can picture him dropping his billfold (of course with the $100.00 bill on the outside) all over heaven, and getting a laugh every time.
R.I.P. D.O.T.
