Mr. Branch is the father of my nephew, Calvin Taylor. Although their time together was cut short, I know that he will live on forever in my nephew's heart.

There needs to be an investigation into this death. His brother, Steve Branch died just a couple months later in a housefire that the family claims was no accident. They are a poor black family in a "Good Ole Boy" town. I smell a rat!

I put my whole name because I want you to know who I am when you read this!! The man that died was my brother! To this day, we still don't know all the facts and what really happened! This is not a joking matter and all you could do was make a joke out of the whole situation! I'm gonna pray for you! Put yourself in our shoes, meaning the family!! If you or anyone else don't have nothing to say that is good or that makes sense, don't say nothing at all!! My heart is hurting everyday because my big brother is gone! You would feel the same way if it was someone in your family! Thank you to all of those that supported us during our time of sorrow and to all of those that supported us when Steve was called home to glory also. Both of them will be missed and are still missed to this day! Justice will be served and we will get answers!!!!!

It's so sad to look here and see that people actaully thought that my uncles death was a joke. That is some sick mess really. How would you feel if they were your family members gone too soon and you have no answers. This world that we live in is one sad place when people don't have respect for the dead or their grieving family. smh. Uncle Steve and Uncle Calvin ya'll will forver be missed and never ever forgotten!
