Happy Birthday Dad.  Today you are 73 years old.  In the past year you became a Grandpa but you also had many mishaps and challenges as your Alzheimer's disease is battling to take over.  We miss you so much.

We've resigned ourselves to the fact that you have succumbed to Alzheimer's and most days are just business as usual.  But, I always find myself grieving on November 4th.  Because it's your day, Dad.  And it's okay to grieve once in a while.  

So, today Megan and I both shed a tear for you.  We love you and miss you.


  1. A great photo! That's the Davey I remember - and those famous yearly fishing trips with Bobby and Bert - the Three Musketeers - a bunch of coconuts (which fell from the Taylor tree).

    Uncle Joe, Aunt Sophia and Aunt Ruthy both have/had symptoms of Dementia (Alzheimers) too. Wonder if there's something in the Taylor genes?


  2. Birthdays are indeed hard. And 73 is so young. I commend you two for joining in this effort to remember him and honor him with a blog about this part of his life. It has potential to help many others.
