Taylor Smith, a sweet little 12 year old girl from Tennessee passed away last week due to complications from pneumonia. In the midst of this unthinkable tragedy, her parents began sorting through the things in her room. What they found was something, being a father to a 10-year-old girl, that got me pretty choked up. They a found a letter Taylor had written to herself, to be opened 10 years in the future, and it's FANTASTIC.

Her father Tim submitted these pictures to buzzfeed.com to share her story with the world. Check out the pictures of the letter below where Taylor talks to her future self about education, faith, technology and more with amazing perspective and wisdom. Godspeed Taylor...
