Remembers trek to funeral home to honor Joe Taylor, Sr.

The man who rang the bell at Columbia Graded & High School

Carol S Myers writes:
I certainly do remember walking to the funeral home to see Joe Taylor, Sr. It was the first time I had visited a funeral home. Joe was known by all the kids and such a good man. The fond memories I have of the old grade school are deeply embedded in my mind and heart. They were such carefree days. --Carol S Myers, Campbellsville, KY
