    Taye was amazing. They were fearless and honest always. They could demolish you in Mario Kart/Fortnite and compliment you in the same breathe. They were a fantastic wing man because most people wanted to approach them. They had an enigmatic energy that everyone gravitated towards. When I was feeling sick they delivered a candle and some snacks to me. When I wasn't feeling confident they would build me up and tell me to check myself because I was a catch. They understood how to be a good friend and a better Virgo. I'm mostly hurt for their mother and siblings. Taye always referred to her mom as her best friend and their siblings as the coolest. I haven't been able to stop thinking about them since this happened and I extend my condolences. The world lost someone really special.

    Mycaila was a beautiful soul. I remember her birthday party @ Harry & Izzy's & when she walked in the room every head turned her way.She was a presence. My granddaughters adored her as we all did.

    Mycaila is and always will be my best friend. She even treated me like a sister, loving me and being there for me no matter what. Her voice was so beautiful, she was the most beautiful inside and out. She helped shape me into who I am today, whether it was showing me how to do my makeup and pushing me to use my voice or even just loving who I am regardless of what others think. I love you so much, so so much with all I have. Thank you for everything you've done for me and others, truly the light of all our lives.
