Dear Friends, 

We could hug each of you who have given our family so much. You have taken the darkest season of each of our lives and brought a light of hope into it.

Each of you has been a hero. Fighting for us to see our dad in his final hours.  You have encouraged us with your presence, cards, calls and messages, keeping us in your prayers, sending us food, buying  t-shirts, donating and hosting a benefit. We are most of all grateful that you were there for us. There was no distance you weren’t willing to cross. You have left us speechless with gratitude. 

While we wear our t-shirts boasting, “Our God is Greater,” we know that it is true. Jeff is healed in heaven. You brought a little of heaven to us in your kindness.  God didn’t make us to live life alone, and we didn’t have to, thanks to you. 

We can never repay what you have done, but please know your neighbors can never forget the love you have shared and we are incredibly grateful.


The Family of Jeff Taylor

Myrtle, Mo.
