It absolutely breaks my heart when I find out one of my former students has left our world far too soon. Taylor was a beautiful girl with a memorable smile. I loved having her on the middle school dance team and she will forever hold a special place in my heart. I am sending my absolute deepest condolences to her family as they have been through entirely too much. Hugs, prayers, and much love to you sweet Taylor and the entire Allen family. I pray your sister greeted you with a big giant hug. 💔
