Ernest (Ernie) LeRoy Taylor, or Grandpa Taylor as many knew him, passed away on October 19, 2012 from a terrible cancer called Leukemia. Ernie was a well-known, well-trusted gentleman who worked as a crossing guard near our school.

He was very close to many children and enjoyed being in their company. For years he surrounded himself with loving people and generous souls.

Heroes aren't just comic book characters or people you see on TV. They don't have to be able to fly or turn invisible. They don't have to have super strength or x-ray vision. They are just everyday people, the people we see walking on the sidewalk or the kid who says “Hi” to in the hall. These people can be heroes, and we may not even know it.
