Had I known the last time would be the last time I would have hugged a little tighter, laughed a little longer and captured that smile. Tay was a beautiful soul! A perfect mix of her Mom and Dad. She will be missed terribly but her love, laughter and life lived will forever remain in my heart. Continue to take your rest Sweet Tay Tay! ❤️
