In memory of Everett W. Taylor

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and for your donations to help us fight prostate cancer which affects so many of our loved ones. Everett fought fearlessly against prostate cancer and although a cure was not found in time for him, it was his wish to continue the fight. We all pray a cure will be found soon.

Everett lived graciously and taught his family more lessons about life than we can count. He gave us an appreciation of nature and a love of music. He had a wonderful sense of humor that always made people feel welcome and at ease. There was never a day that went by without feeling his love. We love him more than we can say, he will be missed forever.

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle Autumn’s rain
Do not stand at my grave and mourn
I am the dew-flecked grass at dawn
Where tranquil oceans meet the land
I am the footprints in the sand
To guide you through the weary day
I am still here I’ll always stay
When you wake up to morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry

I am not there… I do not die.
