    The Fife’s and my family spent many summer vacations together. Born exactly 10 months apart, Taylor was like that brother you loved to hate but couldn’t. As life often gets in the way as we grow older, we drifted apart through high school and college. But thanks to Facebook, we reconnected again. His children and his family were his world and I was beyond shocked to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time and if I lived closer, I would come give you a hug ♥️

    Jerry and family,

    My heart hurts for you. I lost my brother when he was 40 years of age and it’s just so hard to grasp when someone so young leaves us. I will pray for peace for all of you.
