Happy birthday, Taylor! There’s no way that I can sufficiently put into words how much you’ve contributed to my family’s financial health and mental well-being over the years. Thank you for caring enough about investors like us to pass along your experiences and wisdom.

Happy Birthday Taylor. My gosh you made it to 97 years old. I am so old that I remember when you were a mere 88 years old back when I started posting in 2012. Aw, to be 88 again!

Many best wishes and hoping that you will have many more birthdays.

Taylor

It is with pleasure that I am able to post a "Happy Birthday". Would have did it earlier but just registered with your fine site with great people.

I still remember your fine posts on "Morningstar" before it changed. Glad you are well!

Sincerely

Hi Taylor, I found this post from Mr. Bogle himself. He even took the time to write a poem in your honor. A blast from the past back seven years ago. This was one of only 20 posts from him on the Bogleheads. One can see that you meant a lot to him. Way back then, you were just a kid at 90!

Happy Birthday to Taylor, from Jack Bogle

At 2 P.M. on Sunday afternoon, thanks to Mel, I had the privilege of greeting Taylor by telephone. After doing my best to sing a lusty version of "Happy birthday to you," followed by a commemorative poem that I had written earlier. He loved it, and perhaps you'll enjoy it too:

On this freezing day, sitting by my fire
I salute a fine man that I greatly admire.
I tell you that we need him more and more,
He is of course our friend Taylor Larimore.

He’s lived a great life in the service of all
Helping fellow investors through perils and falls
And serving our nation in peace and in war,
That’s just part of the saga of Taylor Larimore.

His crowning achievement, in my biased view,
Is founding the Bogleheads; he’s helped far more than a few.
He’s dispensed wisdom and common sense, wise to the core.
That’s why each one of us loves Taylor Larimore.

With his lovely wife Pat, invited by this humble man,
14 years ago our gatherings began.
Today, our group consists of 25,000 more,
As word spreads of the wisdom of Taylor Larimore.

So to this great man, thanks more and more,
As we wish him birthdays, more and more.
And that’s all I can say about Taylor Larimore.

John C. Bogle

What a thrilling moment in my long life. "We shall not see his like again." Let's treasure this fine gentleman every day!

Happy Birthday!

I hope I never experience horrors anything like the second World War. It was a conflict that humanity should never have needed to fight. And yet, I hope the example that Taylor and so many others set of courage and determination in the face of true evil can be an inspiration to us all. I thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Happy Birthday Taylor! I've said it before: what you initiated in this forum - a place where the average person can get reliable information about how to save and invest - has made an enormous difference in my life and in the lives of countless others. That cascading legacy continues as each of us pass along the smart strategies and values you have embodied, and help others manage their financial lives more effectively. Thank you.
