  • My Deepest Sympathy to the Taylor Family. Eleanor was a Beautiful person, both inside and out and she will truly be missed. I met Ms. Taylor and her sister over 20+ years ago and she was always a delightful person to be around and talk to. A Classy Lady always with lots of Spunk and Beautiful also. As years went by, i was able to talk to her upon my move now in Dallas, and we reminisce on things from back in the day. She was truly a beautiful gem.
    I express again to the family my condolences and may her memories always keep a smile on your hearts 💕

  • Words cannot describe the heartfelt pain of my mother’s passing. She was such a loving mom with all the qualities you would ever want and wish for in a parent. She loved all those that she was very close to. I grieve in knowing that she was not only my mother but a TRUE FRIEND to me as well. Rest in Peace now Ma..I love and miss you with all my heart and soul..forever.

  • I’m remember growing up playing your basement now you gone we love an miss you aunt Eleanor.

  • Mom’s energy will always be remembered. When I was very young boy, I many times stood beside her at the dining room table. In front of her was a coloring book.
    And I would watch, almost mesmerized, as she carefully applied the crayon color, her blues, her red, her yellows, alway so even, always so perfect. It is little surprise that later in life I became an artist. I had a talent for painting. My mom gave me that. I will miss her dearly. Love you mom. Rest in peace.❤
