A note from Sarah Parkins-Pyles about Taylor and the Taylor Strong Project –
“Today (Sept 16, 2017) marks the 12th week without you. 12 weeks ago I said my last good bye to my sweet girl. Hardest 12 weeks my family has EVER had to endure. I vowed the very day that I lost you Tay, that I would give it my all to keep your love, spirit, heart and soul alive in our hearts. Gone too soon is an understatement, so much more to offer this world, and so many more lives to touch.
You were not perfect but you were mine!! I loved every single season and moment in life that I had with you.
What I have learned about you in the past 12 weeks only solidifies what I already knew. The people and lives you touched and the influence you had on so many makes me overwhelmingly proud to be your Mom. I always knew you were special Tay, but never understood the magnitude of how many others knew it too.
You loved God and Country, and your patriotism was felt by all who knew you. You understood the importance of respecting our military and honoring our domestic heroes, First Responders. You were an old soul and loved every single resident you took care of. This was the month you were going to start your journey to becoming a nurse and I am so proud of you for that. You saved me Taylor and now it’s my turn to save who you were. This project and movement is in your honor…
The Taylor Strong Project is still in the very early stages of development, but mark my words, will be a well known name with purpose. Your Purpose! Your strength and tenacity to be proud of who you were and the values you stood for is what has inspired me start this project. You are my love, my light, and my sunshine soul.
If you would like to be a part of the Taylor Strong Project and wear this amazing cuff proudly, please click on the below link and place your order. Great friends of mine Wingspan Outfitters have offered to make it easy and convenient to order and pay rather than me taking one big order. Forj’d Leather is the amazing creator of the cuff and after you get your Taylor Strong cuff, take a peak at their website to see all of their other awesome products. I personally want to thank both of these companies who are not only true Patriots, but also First Responder and Veteran owned. I, my friends am truly blessed! Love to all…”
