    In Memory of Jamaal Taylor

    It’s not supposed to happen, we’ve heard that before,
    A child dying before parents, with so much living in store.
    But there you sit, lie, stand, bow, wondering why,
    Surrounded by family, friends, and acquaintances who share their united cry.
    The answer to questions of grief in this life may never be fully met,
    But the glow in your heart that arises when you say, “my son” will yield no regret.
    Though your beautiful child is now living in your heart,
    Remember, he will not be forgotten, forever a part.

    Along with being friends with my sons Wesley and J.C. Barrett, Jamaal and I shared a birth date, which gave us a special bond. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He had some rocky patches, but he always had a smile on his face and you knew he would be alright. Just know that he is alright now, because he is in God’s Arms, resting with his grandparents.

  8. Sorry for your loss

  12. My condolences to the Taylor family. Jamaal was my grandson Braylen barber. He was the only person my daughter let cut her sons hair. We had a standing appointment with him every other Friday. He always treated Braylen like he was his own. I am going to miss all the good times in the shop. Jamaal was a very good man and will truly be missed by all who loved him. May God bless the Taylor family during this difficult time.

  13. I am sorry this happened it wasn’t supposed to be this way
