Dear Amanda and Kevin,
I don't know if you will remember me, but I lived in Eden from 1987-2000. We lived across from the Whittens and my daughter Jennifer was friends with Taylor.
I wanted you both to know how very sorry we are. You and your families are being lifted up with prayer-the only thing and best thing we can do.
Some of my best high school memories are from the FBC youth group when Taylor was there. She always brought so much positive energy with her wherever she was, her laugh was infectious, and her voice was truly a gift that she used in the best way. I am so deeply sorry for your family's loss. I am praying for the family and loved ones.
Sincerely, Chelsey Watson
Please know that your families are in my thoughts and prayers.

I worked in the Right Management High Point office with Taylor and wanted to reach out to offer my sincere condolences. Since hearing the news, I have been thinking about and praying for your family at this difficult time.
Taylor will be greatly missed here and seeing her cheerful smile. She has such a beautiful soul that lights up a room and know her as polite, witty a kind. Thank you for raising a wonderful daughter that touched so many. I feel fortunate for having been able to spend time with her.
I was a friend of Taylor's and will miss her dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with your family in this most sad of times. May God bring peace to your hearts.

Dear Kevin and Amanda and your entire families, It is so hard to find the words to express how sorry we are for this tragedy in your family. We knew Taylor through our son Bryce Childress. They have been good friends since Leaksville-Spray days. Taylor has been to our house many times and she was always a joy to have around!!! You all used to live in our neighborhood when Taylor and Bryce were preteens. She was such a good friend to our son and we loved that about her. We didn't have the privilege of knowing Meredith, but we know she had to be a special young lady and she was beautiful too! God has these two beautiful young ladies now and he will take care of them until you get to see them again. You all are in our thoughts and prayers and we send our love to you all!!!

My deepest regards and condolences go to the London family at this time. I never really got to see Taylor after high school, but I remember her as being a caring and lovely person, always smiling and surrounded by friends. Regretfully I will not be able to attend the visitation, however I know that your family will be surrounded by many people who loved both Taylor and her sister.
My deepest prayers for you and your family at this time. My heart aches for you all and I pray you find peace and comfort in the days ahead..

Kevin, Amanda, Natalie, and Christian,
I am a member of First Baptist Church and remember and loved your young family.
My heart is made heavy knowing you are facing this heavy burden. Maybe the words of 1 Corinthians 10:13 would help you. We are promised God will go through the difficult times WITH us if we ask Him to take control. I pray for you the strength to do that in your grief.
Kevin and family, I am so sorry for your loss of Taylor and Meredith...my thoughts, prayers and love are with all of you in the days ahead and beyond.

No parent should ever have to face the loss of a daughter or son, and we share your grief at this very difficult time. I worked with Taylor at Right Management, and will miss her pleasant smile, her positive energy, and her contributions to our team. May God bless you all and keep you close now and in the future. Sincerely, Jim Richmond
To Taylor and Meredith's family,
I send my deepest sympathies at this most troubling time. I went to school with Taylor up until 6th grade and danced with her at MPDC for many years. I remember so much about Taylor...her laugh and watching her float across the dance floor. I live several hours away now and deeply regret that I will miss their services. The day I found out of her tragedy I went to my out building and found so many pictures of us together at birthdays and even dance team from Leaksville Spray. I am so very sorry for your loss. God is faithful and will see you through.
Our deepest sympathies,
Elizabeth, Dustin, and Walter Sedlock

Kevin and Liz and all the London family:
There are no words to say to help you at this time; only prayers. We love all of you and you are in our prayers and will be in the days and months ahead.
My heart cries with you for these two losses, two beautiful girls, intelligent, witty, visioned oriented and taken away so young in life. Only God knows the reason and the lives that will be changed because of this tragic event, but people come into your life for a reason, season or lifetime. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and hold you close to comfort you with his Holy Spirit and to fill the empty void you feel.
