  4. Don, Jacqueline and Travis,

    I am very sorry for the loss of Taylor, she was an incredible young lady! Not only was she truly talented, but she was thoughtful, kind, strong and beautiful both on the inside and out. The world is now short one amazing women.

    It is unfair how quickly she was taken but I am thankful she is not suffering anymore. My thoughts are with you always.

    On behalf of the staff of Colonel Irvine, it is with deepest sympathy that I send this message of condolence to you. Taylor was a bright light at our school with her beautiful, ready smile, friendly and caring manner and exceptional talent. She regularly sang O Canada at our assemblies and at the Calgary Board of Education Trustee meeting showcasing her talent. She brought joy to us every day. She is an amazing person who we will all miss very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    Don, Jacqueline and family,
    There are no words that can console at a time like this but we would like you to know that, after meeting Taylor just once, your beloved daughter had a lasting impression on our family. She sat with us for an afternoon and when we parted we felt as though we had known her for much longer. You don’t normally find that kind of spirit in a 18 year old. She left a lasting impression and we are so terribly saddened by her passing. Our deepest sympathy from home Donny.
    Love, , Robin, Tim and Chanel

  11. Don, Jacqueline, Travis,

    I am deeply saddened to hear about Taylor. I came to know your family through your involvement with Foothills Little League. Taylor was a great support to Travis over his many years of playing baseball. Her bright smile, enthusiasm and cheerful disposition was a delight at the ball park. Her involvement in sports was a great addition to helping the team with various drills at ball practise and the leadership she would provide during our games was always welcomed by the players.
    I also had the privilege to hear her sing at church leading the singing with the worship group. It was truly a God given talent she so willingly shared with so many people.
    Taylor will be missed but never forgotten. She is now watching over us, free of suffering and able to sing freely among the Angels in heaven.

    Mr. and Mrs. Bell,

    Taylor was a dear friend of mine in my four years of Youth Singers and her stunning voice and smile brought light to all those around her. I wanted to send my sincere condolences and also let you know that once I moved away for university in Toronto, Taylor continued to make me laugh and smile from across the country. Her smile, beautiful voice, and strength touched me and all those she met. She will be dearly missed by all.

    I pray for your family, and know that after raising such a strong daughter, that you will too be strong with your friends and family around you.

    Love Cassey

  16. Dear Don, Jacqueline & Travis,
    My sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with you during these grief filled days. Although I never met Taylor it is clear from her photo that her radiant smile would warm your heart. At times like this there is no answer to the difficult question ‘Why’. May you be comforted by the happy memories you shared with your beautiful daughter in her all too short life here on earth. I’m sure she is an angel singing and dancing in Heaven and will forever be lovingly remembered.

    With heartfelt sympathy,

    Jill
