Taylor Castilyn, daughter of David and Theresa Castilyn, was born February 16th, 1997; oldest sibling to Paige and Troy. Taylor was our strong willed girl. The most beautiful girl with the kindest heart. She always made friends easily and would include everyone to join in, so they were not left out. Our Taylor would always think of her friends, she loved her friends they were the world to her. She would take off at the first sign of need for friends and family. I hope you all remember this sweet selfless side of Taylor and do your best to echo her behavior and spread kindness and inclusion with all people around you, no matter what your first instinct is, kindness is the answer. Our girl was helpful.
Taylor loved her sister Paige and her brother Troy, when they were young she was the leader. Always trying to help, showing them how it was done.
Taylor took her time coming here on February 16, 1997. Nineteen hours in fact. Our Gift from God. She didn't take time on most other things after that. As she grew she excelled in the classroom and on the field. She was on the cheer squad and was a terrific Softball player and an even better Volleyball player. She was full of ideas and plans. Great plans! After high school Taylor attended the Brown Aveda Institute for schooling. She was amazing with beauty, and style. That was when we saw her shine, she knew that was the work she wanted to do. She glowed when she could see she made someone happy with their new look.
The end was much to short, she was taken too early to fast. Taylor would want us to cry for just a minute, then to be happy and celebrate the time we had with her. I am sure each of you hearing this could crack multiple smiles thinking about times with Taylor. Please keep these memories going so her spirit and memory can stay alive here on earth as she sits with Mike Benetly, her Grandmother and those other young kids she watched go in their short time here.
Taylor loved going four wheeling with her friends she also loved her dog Dom and her cats Jack and Lilly. Taylor was a big animal lover and they always knew it. She loved concerts with friends, spending time with them all. Taylor passed on Sunday Morning, July 16th, 2017.In lieu of flowers, contributions in Taylor's memory may be made to Lake Humane Society, 7564 Tyler Blvd., Bldg. E, Mentor, OH 44060.
