God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

I loved seeing Linwood's easy-going smile every day when we were both picking up preschoolers at IPR. He always nodded and said hi to everyone who came by. A small group of us began also having brunch, and there were always so many insightful and wise things he's pass on in conversation. He was an amazing storyteller and just such a wonderful person. He will be really missed, but I'm happy he can be at rest.

It’s hard to imagine my life without “Wood” in it. Friends since grade school, high school football teammates, college room mates, young adult, middle aged and seasoned adult mates! We put the “forever” in the text book term “BFF”. However I realise my recent tears were selfish. Our loss in this life is his gain in eternity. He is missed, but he’s now in a better place that we should all look forward to!!

Linwood was my classmate and very close Childhood friend. He was one of us Morgan Street kids that played almost every day and night in the neighborhood. He was one of the kids that helped carry my sister home when she got hit in the face with a softball at the game we were playing. All of the neighborhood kids loved him, and we will always have those fun memories.
He was always a big guy :) with a gentle heart, winning smile and warm spirit. My heart is heavy to know that he is no longer with us, in this world. But I know that he is just on the other side of the door - and will be waiting there when it is our time to return home.
I ask that God wrap his arms around his family for comfort, assurance and a speedy recovery from the grief that they feel. I've always loved the saying -- Just Whisper My Name In Your Heart, And I'll Be There - and he will.

Dear Rasheeda, and Linwood, Jr.--
Losing your father so soon is a huge heartache. Linwood Taliaferro was as good a father as God makes; a kind, brilliant, caring man of deep faith who succeeded in life even when so many of the cards in a lived-life dealt him were against all he knew, searched for more deeply, believed in and ultimately achieved. His life will forever cast a loving glow on you and, especially, his two beloved grandsons. May you all bask in his loving afterglow as you progress onward -- forward.
