NEVER FORGOTTEN There were literally thousands of stories Thursday through Sunday when “The Wall That Heals,” a scale model of the Vietnam War Memorial, visited Taylor. Retired teacher Jeraline Dennis of Georgetown came to the wall with her daughter, Qena McCarty, to find the name of a sixth-grader she taught many years ago in a small Louisiana town. They found Sgt.
