A Time For Reverence To GOD:
At an early age Edgar accepted Christ and joined with Progressive New Hope Baptist Church in third ward under Rev. N.S. Brown. Edgar was a faithful, dependable, committed, and loyal member. Before his transition, he was an organist at New Bright Star Missionary Baptist Church. He loved it very much. He played at different churches and weddings all over town. In honor of his legacy he became dedicated to his music. He played for the children’s choirs as well as the adult choirs. He got a joy of serving the LORD. GOD presented Edgar as their musician and servant in which he cared for them with a true heart and skillful hands.

A Time To Work:
Psalm 104:33 says,
“I will sing unto the Lord as long as long as I live: I will sing praise to my GOD while I have my being.”

Edgar Taylor was the Minister of Music that provided our church and Sunday school with musical inspiration, guidance, and leadership. He had the heart and love of selecting appropriate music for all occasions and always gave attention to details. His work was to show perfection because he knew that music is the highest form of praise. He was a spirit led Christian that proved faith without works is dead. Edgar Taylor directed music that was an integral part of the worship that honored Christ. Through his music ministry, lives were touched, souls were saved, and spirits were lifted.

    A Dedication to our Father (Edgar Taylor) By Thomas and Troy Taylor Our father was dedicated to making sure that he raised us to be responsible young boys who one day become responsible young men. He would start a tradition in our family of cutting our hair when we were young boys getting us ready for church on Sunday morning making sure we were not only clean, fed, and ready for Sunday school, but always keep us in good surroundings with the church family we grew up with. He gave us lifelong lessons, and structure that will be passed down through the generations to come. We are proud to have had you as a dad, a father, and as you aged we would label you as pops. I remember you being short of patience at times when we did not want to do our school work in our elementary years. You were firm with us and you never gave up on us no matter what. Sometimes you would tell us “You have to work three times harder than other folks in this life to be somebody”, and we did and you told us you were proud of the men and the fathers that we became. You never made excuses when we asked you why things may have not turned out the way they should for our family. Your reply was “I did the best I could with what I had”, and that was enough for me. It told us that we have to keep our faith with God and trust in God’s word because you always say that “We all fall short of his glory”. You were so right. We would say that our father Edgar Taylor lost his battle with cancer, we would say that God had a great plan and cancer was just something that this old body we use here on earth became contaminated with. Dad you always told us that we are only here a short breath of time within our time of existence and it is those kind of life long lessons that have prepared us in our daily spiritual walk with our father in heaven. Dad we are not saying good bye, we are saying “May God take you into his kingdom until we can one day join you”. So it’s farewell for now, and thank you for all that you have done. Your loving sons, Thomas and Troy Taylor

    GOD created man and woman in Paradise. There, Adam and Eve lived in complete happiness. However, after they were put out of Paradise, conditions deteriorated rapidly. All mankind was affected, even people who believe in God. Consequently, death is one of many heartbreaking occurrences that distress all people. Nonetheless, your dear one who no doubt was loved and admired by many suffered this fact that brings untold grief to your family and friends. My condolences to all of Mr. Taylor’s mourners. Within your grieving and recovery, please, fall into the hand of God, for his mercy is great. 2 Samuel 24:14

    Edgar was my "good cousin" more like a brother than a cousin. I will truly miss him!!! We was always there for each other and we shared many happy times and sad times together. We saw each other grow in the word of God and allowed God to build our character and change our thought process. It will take me awhile to remember he is no longer on this side and I can not just pick up the phone and talk to him. We never over looked each others short comings but spoke the truth to each other and it made us better servants of God for it. I loss my sister Lois two weeks before I loss Edgar and I do believe that they both are now face to face with Jesus. Edgar gave it all he had to live but he and I talked a lot about being prepared for the transition and I know he was ready. Death does not end the love you feel for the person. I do know that death is not a period but a comma. I look forward to seeing you again. Edgar rest in peace. Love Cousin Patricia
