Farewell For Now - In Memory of Taira Johnson Baughman

My sweet friend, Taira Baughman, has gone home to the Lord this morning.  She fought triple negative breast cancer long and hard (since 2010), and is survived by her amazing husband, Rob, and their beautiful children: Jaclyn (19), Breanna (16), Joshua (13), 
and Braydon (5). 

In February, Taira was gifted a surprise trip to Los Angeles to fulfill her dream of going to the Ellen show. It was an honor to be a part of it.  During her visit we did many fun things together, including a photo shoot at Venice Beach, thanks to Brooke Ritter for volunteering her time and talent.  Here's a video Taira created to share her fun trip memories. Our friend, Patti, made this trip possible and invited me to participate. 
Memories I'll cherish forever.

I miss you already, friend. xoxo May you rest in peace in the loving arms of our savior, Jesus.

  1. As a Triple Negative Breast Cancer survivor. This hurts more. Since we belonged to the same group. I, all my life wanted sisters. The TNBC group is how I got mine. Losing any one so hurts and is too many. My heartfelt deepest sympathy goes out to her husband, children, family and friends!! Even with brutal side effects and Chemo brain. She will never be forgotten. Hugs of care, Angellinda Landowski WI.

  2. This saddens me to hear.... I know she's in a better place, pain free. Thoughts from the east coast ....

  3. I miss her too she was amazing and the best aunt ever r.i.p aunt taira.
