I say either Taylor died or was killed,, passed away sounds like for when old people die, just my opinion.... NOBODY should tell you  how to say how you feel most comfortable saying it,,, for pity sake, how do they think we FEEL even having  to say anything....

I agree with Lois Lauraís mom Marc DIED.  My dad passed away due to cancer, my father in law passed away with cancer, but Marc and his cousin Phillip (who died 26 yrs ago) died.  They were both 2 young men who both made a mistake.  They didnít pass away they DIED.  My daughter 27 (Who was only 8 mths old at the time) and my son Phillip (25), who was named after his cousin, know what they have lost.  They have lost a brother and a cousin who will always be remembered.
Go Marc & Phillip (Cousins, brothers, family in Arms) miss both of you boys.  Hope you have found each other.  Love you and miss you both.
You both DIED, you did not pass away
Love you both forever
Judy
