The Division of Veterans Services is reportedly denying access for her now-deceased wife's ashes to be laid to rest in a shared plot.

The pair's ashes would fit in one spot on the wall, not taking up any more space than usual.


Taylor has made it clear she won't be buried anywhere but her hometown of Boise and is prepared to continue pushing for her right to rest alongside her wife.
