Our family is deeply saddened by the the tragic loss of an extraordinary young man who gave his life to serve The Lord. We love Taylor and our hearts go out to the Ward family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Please help the family
We are trying to raise some money to help with the expenses of traveling from CA to Idaho and to Canada (where most of the extended family lives). The money will also greatly help with other costs such as the funeral expenses.

"I really only have one hobby in my life and up in-till recently it really was my life. That hobby is the great sport of ice hockey. I say it was my life because before I decided to go on my mission I left home for the first time in my life and even went to a different country to try to fulfill my dream of going and playing in the NHL as a pro. But while I was there The Lord told me that I needed to go back home and go on a mission even though it was only half way through the season. Now a lot of people especially my teammates and coaches from past teams have asked why I would give up on that dream especially When I had a good shot of making it. My answer is because the Lord has called me to do this marvelous work and I dare not miss this glorious opportunity that will allow me to come closer to god and allow others to come closer to him as well."
