Remembering Taylah one year on. You may have been young, but you have left an ongoing reminder and presence in people's hearts. RIP beautiful girl.

My daughter became Taylah's friend at TAFE, she came to our house a few times once for a party and sleepover, and sang and played our piano. I was amazed at her talent, ability, beautiful voice, she took my breath away. I told her she was amazing and listening to her was beautiful. I'm just sorry we didn't get the chance to know her more. I sensed she was going through difficult times, but she seemed positive and happy with her friends and in my daughters company. I'm am so upset for the family. I want to express my deepest condolences and sympathy and if there is anything we can do to help you, please don't sit alone, don't feel you are alone, please contact us through Facebook or through TAFE.. I know having dealt with the death of my daughters Daddy, when she was very young, that grief grips you and holds on tight, and it becomes a part of you daily life for many years, it's a very personal, difficult, heart wrenching time. Really, I just wanted to say that we are thinking of you and hope that you are coping and want you to know that you are n our thoughts and prayers. Please meaasage me there is anything we can do to comfort you or help you. . Rest in Peace Sweet Taylah, thinking of you. The Rutberg family xx

I went to school with Taylah a few years ago and although I didn’t know her very well and only spoke to her a handful of times she always seemed like a nice girl and I can’t help but feel that if I had maybe befriended her things would have turned out differently. I feel awful for those who were close to her and I hope that her friends and family can support eachother to get through this deeply saddening tradgedy. My condolences. Rest In Peace Taylah <3?

No words can describe the pain we feel in this time, losing such a great close friend, sister and daughter. All my love and deepest condolences to the family. Forever young beautiful girl.

Sending my deepest sympathies to your family. I remember the bright and bubbly girl I met. So bright and full of love. Rest easy darling girl.

Linda, Jake and Family
Our thoughts are with you at this very sad time, we are so lucky that we had the chance to meet you all in England. Taylah was so tired when she arrived at our house she couldn’t even hold her cup of milk. We showed you around Bath and you took the bus trip to see the sights. We were only looking at that photo of us all in Bath recently.
Our love to you all from all your family in England. Louise , Mark, Michael & Adele xxx

Naomi Greaves on 9 November, 2017 at 3:15am

Omg, words can not explain the sadness we are all feeling. You and your family was my rock when I lived with you-seeing your little face coming home from school everyday just made me smile! I knew you would grow up to be a beautiful lady. You are a diamond and will always be in everyone’s hearts. I wish I could be there to say goodbye properly and see your mum and jake but my thoughts will be will with you all. Love you xxxxxxx

Ashleigh Djachenko (TAFE Brisbane) on 8 November, 2017 at 6:18pm

Taylah, you were an absolute delight to know. The classroom was always brighter for your presence and your mischievous ways. I wish you could have found a way to love yourself as much as you were loved by others. You are badly missed, and will be in my memories forever.

Ingrid Sorensen From Bayside Adolescent Boarding Inc (BABI) on 8 November, 2017 at 5:40pm

It was a privilege to get to know Taylah, even for a brief moment. May you find comfort in this time knowing the impact that she had on all those around her. Our sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Dale on 7 November, 2017 at 3:53pm

You were such a pretty, bright, confused girl. Sadly all the love and hopes and attempts to help were in vain. So much potential lost. Maybe somewhere in a parallel universe it is all different, I hope so. Ever in my heart xx

Colleen Hunter ( Child and Youth Mental Health Services) on 7 November, 2017 at 3:25pm
