A candle that burns twice as bright, burns half as long--

What a fun photo of Matt and Megan! This is probably the last one that they took together! It was sent to me by my sister and was taken in the summer of 2007. We went to watch their cousin Corey's band play at a club in Anaheim. I completely forgot this, but I was reminded that we also had tickets to watch him play at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano the night that Megan passed away.

I know that I haven't updated the site since the Run 4 Megan, and really don't have a good reason. Since the run, we have donated AED's to the Ocean Institute in Dana Point and they are now fully equipped if anything should arise. There are so many kids that use the facility all year round, as well as many weddings, meetings, and get togethers that take place at the facility. Right after we donated, a father of a bride passed out at a wedding, and I heard that the Ocean Institute personnel had the AED nearby if needed. Luckily, it wasn't necessary but it does give peace of mind to everyone involved.

I replanted flowers at Megan's Grove today. The rain, wind, and lack of warm sunshine has taken a toll on Megan's Grove, but I am sure that things will grow well this Spring. I met the new Park Ranger, who is just so sweet, and she told me how many people she sees visit the Grove. I really do embrace my time there, and it is really a special place.
