    I am so sorry to hear this. I will always remember Myles (and the whole Taft family) fondly as part of the string academy. Myles was gentle and kind. Sending much love to the family.

    Myles was always unfailingly kind to Elías, even when E could be a bit much. I very fondly remember them splashing around in the creek, and Myles' (and LaSheena's and Luke's) patience and caretaking. My heart is with you all.

    Very sorry to hear this news. Myles worked for us for a few years making glass color. He was such a nice, upbeat, and fun to be around guy. His laugh was infectious. Condolences to all who loved him.

    Myles had a laugh like no one else. You always knew it was him because he just could not contain his good nature from his infinite loyalty, how deeply he cared for the people in his life, and how he just wanted to create things to give back to the world. We grew up together to some degree because we knew each other through the past decade. I saw his struggles, saw the things he created, but mostly I saw how much he was trying to love himself because he truly wanted to be better. I wish I was able to tell him that he was loved because he is which is why I know this is so hard to not be able to say goodbye. Myles had such a good soul and I will do my best to carry on the intention of his existence so that this world will not be without a part of him in it.
