Taylen was a beloved son and friend to many who knew him. It is with a heavy heart that we remember his passing on February 18th, 2021 at the young age of 15. Losing a loved one is a life-changing experience, and it serves as a reminder value the people in our lives while they are here.
Unfortunately, suicide is a growing problem among teenagers, with alarming statistics showing that it is the second leading cause of death among individuals aged 10-24. It is a tragedy that so many young people feel they have no other options in life. It's important for parents to stay present in their children's lives, to create an environment where they feel comfortable talking about their problems, and to let them know that they are loved and valued.
In honor of Taylen and all the other teenagers who have lost their lives to suicide, we have designed the "Forever In Our Hearts" crewneck, which features the suicide awareness ribbon on the left sleeve. This is a symbol of hope and remembrance for those who have been affected by suicide, and a reminder to keep their memory alive. We hope that this crewneck will serve as a reminder to stay present in our loved ones' lives and to reach out for help if we or someone we know is struggling.
