BONHAM, TX -- Ten years after his death, family and friends remembered a firefighter who died in the line of duty.

His two children helped unveil a sign designating a section of Highway 56 between Bonham and Dodd City as the James E. Taylor Memorial Highway.

The 28-year-old firefighter-paramedic from Blossom died in an early-morning wreck in 2003, when a car swerved and hit the ambulance he was in on the way to an emergency call. 

"If he was here he'd say what's the big fuss I was doing what I loved I was doing my job, but these people loved him like we do and it just thrills my heart that they came out to honor him," says mom Sandra Taylor.

Firefighters including a special color guard from The Colony attended a memorial service for Taylor on Saturday morning at the Seventh and Main Baptist Church before going to see the sign and visiting the crash site.
