Oh, Taylor, Taylor. ..You were so good at what you did! I met you as a baby, and you were such an awesome traveler. Your Dad would pick you up out of the car and set you on the dinner table next to him in the car seat. You were always so happy. And when I think of your Heavenly Father just lifting you up and setting you down next to your Dad again …all I can imagine is the peace and the joy of being seated in Heavenly places together with Jesus.
Our hearts are so sad for the loss of your precious son, Stephanie, but we are so thankful that as soon as he left this earth, he was instantly in the presence of our precious Lord. We wish we could be there to give you comfort and hugs, but we are praying often for you and your family. Love you dearly!
Stephanie, this just breaks my heart. There are no words. Love and more love to you.
