Customer's chair a memorial at N.Y. Starbucks

Sunday, November 30, 2008

NEW YORK -- One customer's favorite chair at a suburban New York Starbucks has become a memorial.

Employees at the store in Nyack say the chair was favored by Fleming Taylor, a paying customer even though he was homeless.

Acquaintances say Taylor's body was found Wednesday under the stairwell where he lived.

Now that purple velvet chair has been cordoned off with black ribbons and bouquets are placed on the seat in Taylor's honor.
