Taylor was, by far, one of the sweetest girls I have ever had the privilege to meet. I was her student teacher when she was in 10th grade ELA and I always remember her beautiful smile that was on her face every single day. I am so incredibly sorry for this devastating loss. The world will truly be a little bit darker without her in it.
