I’m so thankful to have known Lee. My family lived across the street from the Taylors for many years over on Santa Fe in Kokomo. Lee was an amazing friend and lived a beautiful life. The Taylors were all a blessing to us. Lifting you all in prayer! Praying for your strength during these times. Love you Taylor family! My heart hurts for you.
Lee was the consummate valuer of persons. We’ve been separated by many miles, but we’d connect by phone. He was never one to rush off of a conversation. A small but significant custom was that at the end of the call, he’d linger a bit longer to express a little extra affirmation, love, caring… I’m pretty sure I always ended up hanging up first. He just never wanted anyone to feel “cut off” in some way. Lee, you made a difference.
Really grateful for this time with all of you to grieve and celebrate Lee. He made my life richer with his friendship. I don’t think I’ll ever comprehend the pain he had to live with. But all of us are proof of the love and care he cultivated even with that burden. I’ll miss his phone calls and text messages to check in. My heart breaks for Grace and his family, and all the people who loved him. I’m so glad he’s no longer in pain. And I’m so sad he’s gone.
Lee was one of my very first friends I met when I started going to high school. He had this way of making you just want to be around him. He was truly an amazing person.
There aren’t enough words for the joy, courage, effervescence, encouragement and love that Lee brought to everyone around him.
I love seeing the incredible ripple effect of the love this one precious man had for every person he met. Not a day will go by that I won’t miss him and mourn the loss of his joyful countenance.
Lee was the most influential person in my childhood. Starting from basketball camp at 10 years old to high school. After high school, we stopped hanging out but always kept in touch. He was such an amazing man. I’m celebrating the fact he’s no longer in pain and living his best life in heaven right now, but it’s hard; the world just lost the most genuine, loving, wonderful man possibly the world’s ever had. You can’t say enough about this man. He would literally give you the shirt off his back! Love you, Lee; I’ll see you soon, sir!
I am thankful for all the things I don’t deserve that Lee made possible for me – I sit here now with my future wife that I never would have met if it wasn’t for Lee – For the endless conversations that helped me through some of the hardest times in my life.
I don’t know who will read this, but I want you to know Lee touched my life, too. My prayers are with his loved ones.
