  1. So so sorry about your loss. He was a good guy. Definitely going to miss him. Heart is heavy for you right now. He impacted my life tremendously. Prays for you

  2. Taylor worked me in Memphis Tennessee at rum Boogie Cafe. The amount of progress he made for his circumstances. He wanted to get right. He also had dreams and aspirations and goals that he was looking forward to achieving. This is tragic loss and maybe something positive can come out of all of this. He was a very talented artist and in the process of learning tattooing and trying to do something with himself. I spent a lot of time with him in the last several months before he moved up here and let me tell you he had a good Soul good heart and was a very good person and anyone who knows him closely knows that’s true. Anybody can throw stones but the fact remains he was a good person and he’s going to be missed by many. He altered my life and a lot of other peoples lives while he was here in memphis by his quirky light hearted he shined while on this world while he was one of a kind and anyone who knew him knows he was a total joy to be around!RIP Taylor signing off my friend you will always be missed by courtney minton and Me Anthony Linn!
