Twelve-year old Taylor Wiseman went missing on December 27th, and 50 days later he was found at the bottom of Lake Kemp.
He would have graduated last weekend from Seymour high school.
It was around Christmas time in 2007 when Taylor went missing, and the Jowers didn't see it coming.
"Charity works as a home health attendant at Lake Kemp, Texas and Taylor used to go out there all of the time and just hang out at the lake. And he went outside apparently to look at a brown sand crane while she was working and she didn't think anything of it, then they couldn't find him," Jeremy Jowers, Taylor's dad said.
Taylor Wiseman was only twelve years old when he went missing. Fifty days later, on Valentines Day 2007, searchers found Taylor's body at the bottom of Lake Kemp. His parents say over the years, Taylor has made his mark on the lives of many people.
"I mean he didn't judge anybody before he got to know them and I guess that's why he made such a mark because he didn't care about your outside, that's what I remember most about him anyway," Jeremy Jowers said.
During graduation week Taylor's classmates took time to honor him, showing Taylor will never be forgotten.
"My parents and my grandmother who we can barely get around came out and just came to the graduation. It touched us all it really does, so many years later that they still remember him," Jowers said.
It's the impression that Taylor made on so many in Seymour and his memory that his parents say has gotten them through over the years.
The Jowers get together with local musicians each year and host a concert to raise money for a scholarship in Taylor's name.
The concert takes place in December around the same time he went missing in 2007, and all of the proceeds go to the scholarship.
