Thank you so much for your kindness and prayers during this difficult time for my family. On Thursday, July 16, my sister Lace Francois Taylor passed away from cancer. While we know she is in a better place, it is heart-breaking not to have her with us and to hear her voice every day.

My faith and my family have carried me through every moment of this past week. This was a time for mourning, a time for healing, and a time for family. I am extremely grateful for your understanding and consideration.

As I turn my attention back to this community and the people of Florida’s 10th Congressional District, I want you to know that I am fully committed to you. It is now time to build up this community, to speak up for your interests and your freedoms. I will always work to safeguard our shared values of faith, family, and freedom so everyone can experience the American dream.
