Klarlund, Taylor Anthony's Guestbook

I imagine there is no pain more far reaching and deeper than losing a child. Our heart and prayers go out to you at this most difficult time.

Heidi and Peter Lotter

Taylor meant so much to all of us. He was a friend to everyone and always made sure to include everyone. He was the first friend Dave had when we moved to the area and even though Dave wasn’t as outgoing Taylor took him under his wing and showed him the way and we will forever be changed for having known him.

Jay, Christy, and David Hunt

(Camp Encourage long-time volunteer with son who has ASD) it was a special experience during the first mini-camp with Taylor in March of 2017. As I was fire builder, I enjoyed his enthusiasm for the evening of s'mores and song. I have a favorite memory of Taylor singing Sweet Caroline with his arms over two other delighted fellas. I believe their voices carried far with the golden glow of sunset through the woods behind them. This joyful energy was at the end of a day of helping his camper group navigate all the activities together. Much to be proud of. My condolences to all Taylor's loved ones. I will miss his 100-percentness 🦋

Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you and the whole family. We are sorry for your loss and unimaginable pain. Taylor was always so sweet, kind and mannered. We only knew him the last two years but he was easy to like. By talking with Faith, Taylor helped her not be nervous on the aquarium outing. Faith was hoping to get to know Taylor better in the adult group next year. We are so sorry. Just let us know if there is someway we can help. Sending prayers.
