Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Deputy Sheriff James E. Taylor

Dear Uncle James,
Today its been 25 years since your death. I went to a family reunion this weekend and I told Anthony about this site. He was going to tell Keith, Pam and Aunt Glenda. I hope others leave some reflections here so you will know just how much you are missed. And we as a family can share our memories of you. I know for my daddy this day every year is so hard for him. Anthony had said this weekend that people say it gets easier, but it never really does. I know there are some many mile stones in your kids life where they miss you so much. I have faith and know that you are in heaven watching over them and that you walk with them daily. God Bless you Uncle James and we miss you everyday!

Dear Taylor Family --
On this day while much of the nation is reflecting on the fifth anniversary of 9/11, we wanted you to know that we are also grateful for your loved one and his work in Georgia law enforcement.
My wife and I are former GBI Agents and worked undercover for many years from Rabun Gap to Tybee Light assisting many Sheriff's and Chief's with drug problems in their towns and cities. We met many outstanding local law enforcement officers while doing this work for the GBI and deeply appreciated their concern for our safety as we conducted our investigations.
God Bless the Taylor family and all law enforcement personnel serving in the Great State of Georgia as well as their peers in other public safety agencies. God Bless our men and women in the military working to keep all of us safe and out of harm's way.
We deeply appreciate the work of Deputy Taylor.
Love, Walt, Len, Jimmy, Christopher, Patrick and Nicholas Brooks of Lawrenceville, Georgia (retired GBI)

James was my uncle and I learned of this website only after a young officer who was a family friend lost her life in a training accident and I did a search for my uncle.
James a funny and great man. He loved his family and always made sure we had a yearly reunion camping in the woods in Hiawassee GA. Life has not been the same since James left us. We still miss him today as much as ever. We find confort in knowing that we will see James again someday. Until then we must live life as James did, fully and with passion.
