These are my grandparents. My father Larry Strickland was the 2 nd oldest son of Audrey Sarah Decker Taylor and Robert Taylor. My father was adopted by the Strickland family at about the age of 10 years. His brother is Bob Taylor and then Audrey re-married to John Ray of ElCajon ca. My grandfather left Audrey to tour in a band and never came home. Audrey went to Alabama to go find a home for her and the boys and upon her return both Larry and bob had been placed for adoption by Audrey's husbands father ( Robert Taylor's father). I was fortunate enough to if ally meet my real family when my daughter was just 6 months old. She is now almost 19. Her name is Amber Nicole Larini. My x husband is Miles Larini but I have kept the Larini name so my true legal name is Julie Anne Strickland Larini.
