Marshall Family gives thanks for support


To the editor,

To our wonderful friends & family, local businesses & residents from all over, I still sit here and look back over the last two months and wonder how we got through it all and the only thing that comes to my mind is Love.

Our family suffered a great loss in loosing Taylor, she was a strong, honest, caring and amazing young woman and her greatest gift to all of us and everyone she knew was Love.

Love was very important to Taylor, she always wished the world was different and that everyone would just love one another no matter what, despite differences in race, religious beliefs, political, sexuality; we were all people that deserved Love.

So as I sit here to thank you all for everything you did for our family during Taylor's hospitalization, her death and The Benefit for Taylor Marshall, I want you all to now that you not only helped us through the hardest experience we will ever go through in our lives. You also showed Taylor how much love their really is in the world and you filled that hall on Dec. 2 with so much of it, and I know Taylor was so happy that day to see it all being given to us.

I wish I could write a letter to each and everyone of you because your hard work and dedication to the Benefit made it the wonderful event that it was, but we want all of you to know that we love you and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all of the love, generosity and support that you gave our family. You will all be in our hearts forever.
