    My deepest condolences to Taylor’s family and friends. I admit, I’d been praying for those lost, especially Taylor Anderson who was post again and again on the Sendai Earthquake facebook group. I hope that if her family needs support, they will turned to love ones and surprisingly I know they have a deep network of support on the internet they may also turn to for love. Rest in peace, Taylor.

    Although I didn’t know Taylor as well as the other Miyagi-ken ALTs, I have some fond memories of her. A bunch of us got together for a book club, and I remember she was excited at my proposal of reading Watchmen. She was intelligent and kind, and both Japan and America (along with her JET friends from all over the world) will miss her greatly. I am keeping her loved ones in my thoughts and continuing to pray for those who are missing.

    Thank you Taylor for coming to Japan as one of ambassdors from U.S. I am really sorry that you were in the disaster and lost your life.
    You will be remebered for all of us as a great and ambitious JET.
