Taylor,

Happy Birthday! You have always impressed me. You're a good role model of what a man ought to be. I'm very happy that you walk this Earth.

Thank you for everything you give.

Happy Birthday Taylor. 96 years old. Where did the time go? I remember when you were a mere 89 years old! Many best wishes, Ned.

Taylor, I learned about you from a good friend in the mid-1990's when you were a fixture on M* message boards. Little did any of us know in the 1990s how important your leadership, humility, and personal giving style would become - -and your influence and longevity on Bogleheads is legendary. But equally important is your heritage and commitment to serve others, decades before Bogleheads were around!

Many thanks for all you've done to serve so many over so many decades! You are a true blessing to the World!

Please celebrate your milestone and focus on what you have done for so many others over the decades. More than most anyone I know, you should bask in it! Jack Bogle was a great admirer of both your efforts and your impact over the years

God Bless and God Speed!

Taylor, I'm wishing you the happiest of birthdays. You, and a few others you know well, have made an immeasurable difference in my investing - and therefore non-investing - life. I can't thank you all enough.

Not only did you survive the great depression in the 30s fight for your country in the 40s, build America in the 50s, watch the young generation turn on you in the 60s, you have defended the average American to have a more prosperous life. There is a reason you kind is called the greatest generation

Bodgleheads:

I woke up this morning on my 96th birthday to read this thoughtful post started by Mariam2, our beautiful and effective President of The South Florida Boglehead Chapter (meeting tomorrow).

Bogleheads, your many kind and thoughtful posts have made me the happiest man in the world!

Thank you and best wishes.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart to the top of my wallet.

There are two truths here. First, I did not create this poetic line, I read it from another Boglehead years ago, but felt it certainly applied to me.

Second, there is no question that your courteous and wise counsel on this forum and in your books over the years has enabled me to be more financially secure than I ever would have been without you. And that's for sure.

Happy Birthday and may you enjoy many more with your family in this great country you defended for us.
