18!!!

Happy Birthday Megs!!! If you were here right now I would tell you that I miss you, I love you and I want you back. I would tell you that I would trade places with you in a heartbeat... if I could. I would tell you that I don't know why you left us so quickly, and that I would give anything to hug you again. I would tell you that it is just not fair, and that you should be here to live the life that you were given. But you aren't and I don't know why. The world has changed so much since you left. I constantly think about how much you would have loved Facebook, texting, high school dances, high school football games, you would have loved high school for that matter!! You missed out on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and you missed out on Madison rolling her eyes at me when I sing their songs in the car! You missed Madisons first day of Middle School, and Matts first day of college. You missed out on hanging out with your fabulous friends. There is just too much to mention. You have missed all of that... and we missed you. Alot. Today Matt will come back from college and we will have a dinner at our house with Megan's friends and their families. It will be the last time that we are all together for Megs birthday since next year most of them will be away at college. Time marches on.

my heart breaks for you, for all of you, for us. Megan was ripped off, no doubt; you were, we all were, this world was. She would be picking a college and knowing her, she would have had a tough time choosing from the many offers! Boys would be hovering at your house non-stop, yet, Megan was smart and kind and would have had all of them believing they were the "one"! Again, having to choose from the many offers!
Megan deserved so much more, but this wasn't Megan's journey for some reason. Beautiful Megs has peace and doesn't hurt. How fortunate we all were to have her for the time we did. I couldn't imagine our lives without her!

Never meeting Megan but just seeing pics of her and knowing her Mother for almost 40 years I knew what a great kid she was. For some reason her Life was cut short and we will never know why. People say the hurt will go away in time but I don't think it every will.We will always hurt.I guess God had a plan for her to stay forever 14. Megan you were a Beautiful person and we will always remember and Love you!

I was in my freshman year when I heard about Megan from my friend who was in Cross Country at our school (Aliso Niguel). I am so very sorry for your loss. Due to Megan's story, I value life at a much higher scale, knowing every day given is a gift. God bless you and your family.

I was actually looking for another Megan Myers, but found this tribute page. Your Megan Meyers and I have the same birthday, March 30. For me, it was 1959. This website is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your daughter in such a nice manner. I wish all who knew Megan, solice and peace...keep running!!!
