I, Tahanee, and Stuart Paterson, and Eb’s father Darren Reynonds, and our neighbour Rob Head, watched the memorial service on our TV screen through a computer from 16 Roberts Street, FTG, where Tay spent so much time with us. Darren and I, Tahanee, went down to be with you all after the service before the hearse drove off. I was lucky enough to put our spunky girls last sunflowers on her coffin before our last good bye. Forever with us beautiful! ( )

  48. A beautiful service for a beautiful girl. Fly high with the angels Tay, can’t wait until we can all be together and celebrate a truly amazing life, all our love Phil, Hayley, Annie, Chloe and Mel xx

  49. I learnt about Tay from her loving father Anthony a week after her passing.

    When he reached out to me—a mere stranger on the Internet—how could I ignore a fellow Aussie bro?

    I learnt about Taylah’s life, her bubbly personality & her generous heart through posts about her online & her facebook page. I learnt even more about her today. She indeed is one of a kind & the world has lost a beautiful, kindhearted person.

    I learnt about Tay’s medical journey as documented by her loving mother Jodie on gofundme.

    I learnt that Taylah was initially diagnosed with some of the same disabling medical conditions which I have. I was very moved by Taylah’s story particularly about her strength through her painful medical journey.

    Taylah was just 20 years old. She’s gone. I’m 32. I’m alive. It all seems so very unfair.

    I wish I had known her & her family last year & was able to offer some support to her & her family—even if that was just lending Taylah & her dear family an empathetic ear.

    Dear Jodie, Anthony, Shaun, Braden, Billy, Ebony, Grandparents of Taylah & all other friends, family & loved ones of Taylah,

    My deepest and sincerest condolences to you.

    I Send you all my prayers for your strength and peace.

    Thank you kindly for allowing me, a stranger on the internet, to learn about Taylah, her beautiful life, & for considering me to participate in the ceremony with her beautiful, loving, kind & generous family & friends.

    May Taylah’s soul rest in everlasting peace.

  50. Thankyou for letting us be a part of your beautiful service in memory of Tay. Although I did not know her very well, I know she touched the lives of many of my close family members and they all loved her very much. Thinking of all of you at this sad time and sending lots of love to Billy and his family, Ebony and all of the Keating family. Condolences to all who loved her and may she fly high with the butterflies.

  51. Our deepest condolences to the Keating family and Billy. You all spoke so beautifully and we feel honoured we could be part of the service today.
