Taylor touched many lives on her short time on earth and the entire family is grateful and wishes to acknowledge all of the support received for Taylor from the music industry and whole community at #TeamTaylorG. The outpouring of love and caring was overwhelming and in Taylor's memory, she would want you to keep the faith, finish strong and continue the battle against cancer by doing whatever you can for those in need.
