Taila cared for and was loved by so many. She was a fighter who also had a heart of gold. Taila's spirit and energy was infectious. She was a beautiful soul inside & out. Her laugh was contagious, her smile was one in a million and will be shining down from heaven. She loved dance, music, her animals, and spending time with her family, especially her grandparents . Taila battled brain cancer for 3 long years, she is one of the strongest warriors we were blessed with. Some days were not as easy as others but she kept on with faith, hope and love.
