More about Sierra VanSuch:
Sierra is a kind hearted, gentle soul and never has an unkind word to say about others. She is loved by all who know her. She is quiet until she gets to know you but once she feels comfortable with you she has a great sense of humor. She never has to be pushed to do extra; she puts more pressure on herself to be the best she can be than she needs too. Sierra had many wonderful people she looks up to step forward and want to write recommendations for her for the scholarship. From heads of school, teachers, and clergy, the theme is always the same, Sierra is an exceptional child.< Back

Taylor is proud and smiling for the legacy you've created in his honor. Even if you don't believe this, I have to say it... Taylor is more alive in heaven than any of us can imagine. He will forever be young, beautiful and is perfectly loved. He is not alone and he is the pure love and grace that makes miracles happen for kids like Sierra. Thanks for sharing the news- I will smile all day because of it!” -Elizabeth Baillie
