To the family and friends of Taylor:
This is distressing and deeply sorrowful news. Taylor was a student of mine in grade 9 academic science, and she possessed a keen mind for academics combined with an insatiable thirst for excellence on the rugby pitch. Her effervescence and 'joie-de-vivre' were infectious, and I fondly remember many fine moments and plentiful laughs I had with Taylor and her peers.
May heaven's deepest peace surround the family and friends at this time.
Michelle and Bill

Michelle & Bill:
Renee and I had the lucky chance of playing with Taylor all the way through high school. She was the best role model any team mate could ask for. Taylor was such an inspiration to be the player we all want to be. She was truly one of a kind. Her memory will live on in us forever. Miss her already and heartfelt sympathies to you.
Brittany and Renee
