She said: “It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of a beloved team member, daughter and friend. Taylor Kahle, you will be sadly missed.”
The message continued: “I know Taylor touched a lot and she was one of the good ones. I’ll never understand why she had to leave this life so soon. Her dad was her best friend and thanks to Covid they moved on. the last year together.
“I know she was the happiest when he was there too with all of her dogs she saved. Everyone longs to have a relationship like he had with their daughter.”
McFarlane concluded: “Taylor gave in her last moments as she always did and was an organ donor, saving several lives and helping a lot at the end of the life that she always did in her life.
“There will be a celebration of life and a way to honor his memory and we will share when we know more details.”
