6’8” Not just the size of a man, but the size of his stature. The Golden Retriever of Men. Loved by all. With an uncanny ability to make people see people for who they are, not who they like. Taige broke down social barriers. He brought truth and comfortability to each and everyone he met. He helped guide us when we were lost. He was a gentle giant. He made us laugh at ourselves and sometimes him. When he danced, he would consume you. When he laughed, you heard it from a block away. When he smiled……when did he not smile. He made us better people. The loss is huge, just like the size of the man and the size of his stature.
