We met while my husband was stationed at Fort Bragg. He and my husband were assigned to the same unit and became fast friends. He had quick wit and kept me laughing all the time. He had a generous spirit. He was what I called a closet softie. He was all bark and no bite.
Yesterday, he was killed in action by a roadside IED. He leaves behind a wife and 4 month old son. I am having such difficulty with this tragedy, but his wife is a true wonder. Even in the midst of her sorrow, she knows that he died doing what he believed in. He thought we needed to be there and that we were doing a good thing. She also knows she will meet him again.
Please pray for my friend, Major David G. Taylor. I loved him like he was my own brother. I miss him terribly.
