I love you Dave, and still miss you and your mom. One month and three days ago was the sixth anniversary of her death and today is the eighth anniversary of yours.

I would say that overall, I am feeling better now than when I last wrote, both physically and emotionally. BTW after two years of a doctor telling me that I had eczema, it turns out that it's really psoriasis. But anyway, it has been better the last two seasons than it had been before. Love always, your friend and stepdad.

I love you Dave. Thanks for all your help while you were here.

Still the same old shit around here, Dave. The only thing that has changed since losing so many family members is that my depression seems to deepen and the eczema that began a couple years ago continues to have terribly painful flareups. The current flareup seems to correspond to your death and the impending holidays.
.
Nevertheless I hope you and Mom are at peace.

And It has been six years now since you left us, Dave, and I have been thinking about you a lot this week. Still miss you, Son and all that you used to do to help out around here.

On the matter of anniversary dates, four days ago was the 110th anniversary my own father's birth. I had wanted to go up to this his gravesite but I have not left the property all week.

I love you, Dave. I still miss you and your mom very much. Hopefully not too much.

Another year has gone by, Dave.
I'm still not completely back on my feet.
But I am working on that.
I love you, Man.

On Earth, this would be your 45th birthday, Dave.
Sure wish you and your Mom were still here so we could celebrate.
Miss you both so very much. . . .

4 years ago I lost one of my best friends. Still not a day goes by that o don't think about you or am reminded of you by one small thing. Just yesterday I got in Sydney's car and she was playing Depeche Mode. We talked for awhile about you and the song. The girls and I love you so much and miss you every single day. I know your there somewhere watching over us all.

Three years, that is crazy. Time goes by so fast think of you often. I know you are with your mom and Alan. Enjoying the view. Miss you

Well it's been three years and still fresh in my heart like it was yesterday. Symantha and Sydney chose to spread your ashes at the Petroglyphs in Ivins since they remember taking you there when they were little. They had fond memories there. They also decided that their Grandma Pat would want to be with you and spread her ashes with you. Symantha lives there so she is able to visit you both often and feels a lot of peace and closeness to you both there. I am glad they were adult enough to make that choice by themselves. They couldn't stand the thought of you and grandma being shoved in a mosoleum and not feeling free.

You're three years out this morning, Dave. 
Fly Free, my Friend. Fly Free.

Hey, Dave!
Still thinking of you and your Mom and missing you both very much.
Posted by Susan Isgrig on December 17, 2013
Dave....well it's been two years today that you left us. It's been a crazy two years for me and our girls. Symantha graduates high school and moved to Utah to attend college. Sydney turned sixteen this year. Allen and your mom both passed away a month ago, such a shock! The intense feeling of loneliness and sadness without you around is still felt so strong between the three of us. You are missed so much. I am glad your mom is with you now. Thanks for watching over us and still comforting us in our times of need. Love ya!

Dave, 
Allen left here to join you on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Patti followed on Thursday, November 14, 2013. On this side, there is a very deep sadness in our hearts. May there be joy on your side at your new arrivals!

Happy Birthday Dave!

Dave,
You're one year out on your latest journey.
May you fare well, my friend; may you fare well.

Its been a couple long weeks for us. You would have been 41 years old this year. You were a part of my life for over 26 years. Doesnt seem possible. Your ildest daughter finished her 11th grade year and is now a senior in high school, wow I remember those days for us. Needless to say she is much better behaved then either of us were. Happy Birthday Dave. We all miss you.

Nobody will ever understand the depth of our relationship, but I know we had a love that could never be broken and a freindship that would endure a lifetime. I really miss you and there is a piece of me you took with you...We love you...Susan, Symantha, Sydney

I know Daves mom, Pat can relate to this story...I was about 6 months pregnant when Dave had to deploy to Saudi Arabia for a tour to guard the barracks that had been bombed. I was scared and devastated since I was going to be alone and have our second child coming along. Before he deployed I made a video of him so Symantha could see her daddy while he was away. I still have that video and the one thing that always struck me as funny, in the video he specifically says, "Dont kill my plants".....He loved his plants and boy could he grow them.....P.S. to you all thinking bad.....they were not illegal!

My Closing Words

Shared by Susan Isgrig on February 6, 2012

In Memory of David Joseph Taylor

            First and foremost, I want to give my deepest condolences to Allen and Pat Reid for the loss of their son. No parent should ever have to endure the loss of a child, no matter what age that child might be.

            I don’t know where to begin or how to describe in words how the loss of Dave has affected me and our daughters, Symantha and Sydney. The three of us wished that we could have been there with the rest of his friends and family to celebrate the life of Dave and how he touched each and every one of us in a special way.

             I would like to thank Brady Mercy, if it weren’t for him introducing Dave to me, I may never have had the opportunity to share a huge part of my life with such a special person and have been able to be blessed with two of the most magnificent, beautiful daughters in the world, which I have to add have been coined “The Wonder Girls”.

            Dave was not only my first love, my boyfriend, my husband, a father, but through thick and thin, he and I always share a special bond in friendship. We grew up together, we made mistakes together, we learned together, and we were always there for each other no matter what the circumstances were. No matter how close we were or how far apart we were, we always managed to pick each other up, dust off the dirt, and make each other smile with hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow.

            I know there are many of you here that shared a friendship in one way or another with Dave, but after all the years I know he would want a few of you to know how much you touched his life. Brady Mercy, Bill Barry, and Joe Popp…..you guys he never stopped talking about since the day I met him, no matter where he was or what he was doing you three held a very special place in his heart. Finally, Allen he thought you were the most wonderful father and if he had to choose himself he always said he could never have done better. Pat, you and Dave had one of the most special mother-son relationships ever. I personally want to thank you for bringing him into all of our lives.

            So, in closing, I just want to say thank you to Dave for sharing the love he had, being a part of my life, and giving us two awesome daughters. We will always love you and your memories will live on through us.

            I know everyone is saddened by the loss, but I know Dave wouldn’t want everyone to mourn, but always said if he went first to make sure we all drank a beer for him……Rest In Peace Dave!

Thank You,

Susan, Symantha, and Sydney
