It is with deep sorrow that I have to inform you little Daniel Taylor passed away from Neuroblastoma cancer at 1:18 am on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Daniel endured long and sometimes arduous treatments for the past 18 months as the doctors tried their best to cure his cancer. Through it all he remained the happy, positive young boy that he was. Daniel was passionate about cars and car racing and his trips to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with the Upper Canada Region of the Porsche Club of America were indeed a highlight for both him and his family. At these events he did not stop smiling, and as on one occasion it was pouring with rain he commented ‘I love the rain’. Many members of the club donated funds to Daniel’s family which enabled them to take close relatives on Daniel’s wish trip to Disneyland. It is these wonderful memories that have been created that will help sustain them on the long and difficult journey ahead; a journey of a life without Daniel.
Daniel will certainly not be forgotten, as anyone who met him fell in love with him and his kind heart. He touched all those who he came in contact with. The world is a sad and lesser place now he is gone.
Thank you to all of you who supported Hearth Place and Daniel’s family over the past year. You really have made a difference!
