I have fond memories of "growing up" in Caddo, although some of them fade from time to time.

I cannot remember music without Mrs. Erma L. Taylor. She was not only the Caddo School Music Teacher, but was also the pianist at First Baptist Church Caddo. As a child, it was amazing to see her almost effortlessly "tickle the ivory" while accompanying the hymns at church.

I wish I could remember all the operettas and other musical programs she guided us through, and the fun we had when we thought she wasn't watching. She gave many of us our appreciation for music (and later as a writer, she imparted similar appreciation for recording local history).

There is one thing that I haven't forgotten and will never forget, a lesson she taught us then during every practice, for every Christmas program, for our whole life.

Now, every year, a bittersweet memory ambushes me the first time we sing Christmas carols; and because of her, I can never forget to enunciate the "t" in "Silent Nigh-t".

There is no doubt she "sleeps in heavenly peace". I look forward to seeing her again.
