Hi Megs, Sorry I missed posting on your Birthday but we were running around all day. I think of you often but even more on your Birthday. Wish you were here so we could celebrate together. Hugs. Joyce

I cannot believe that you have been gone 6 years Megs. Your photo is on the wall of my bedroom so I see you every time I walk in. Do you hear me when I think "I miss you"? I often remember how excited I got when Grandma Emily said I could go visit you and Alice Mae. If you are together now give each other hugs from me. Love You.

Happy Birthday Megs. You are so missed. Yours is one of the family photos I have in my bedroom and I smile every time I see it. I see Maryalice, Margee & Maureen (occasionally) but not enough. Margee & I have a little project together. {{{HUGS}}} Wish I could Hug you in person. Love You.

Hi Megs, It's hard to believe that another year has flown bye & it's the anniversary of your birth. You are so missed. I think of you often. Sending you {{{Hugs}}}. I ran across the photo that MaryAl sent me of you & Alice Mae walking with me in-between. Happy Memories. Love.

Dearest Megan, I can't believe it's been 4 years since we lost you. You will always be alive & well in my heart. Miss you. Love.

Sending thoughts and prayers to all of Aunt Megan's kids and family, and sending her a big (((HUG))) up in heaven on the 4 year ^^angelversary^^.

Four years...I miss you...just wanted you to know I am doing what you suggested. I love you!
Posted by Joyce Steele on 2nd March 2015
Thought of you and your Birthday on the 28th. I remember how we would joke that had you been born a few minutes later you would be a 4th of your age. But then we joked that you would only have a 4th of your Birthday parties.... I miss you and Alice Mae so much. Love.
Posted by Maryalice Bourdelais on 28th February 2015
Felt you this week!

THANK YOU, MARY ALICE FOR INCLUDING US! We are so thankful for her efforts to visit us in San Diego before she returned to Miss! HUGS phyllis and chuck hugins
Posted by Joyce Steele on 22nd January 2015
I, too, can't believe it has been 3 years. My world was a better place when you and Alice Mae were in it. Childhood memories often dance through my head. I miss you both so much. {{{HUGS}}}
Posted by Maryalice Bourdelais on 22nd January 2015
Yo mom ! 3 years...doesn't seem possible. So this past year you were joined by your sister. I miss you forevermom. I love you.

Happy Mothers Day...my best memory of a Mother's Day with you is when I rented a burgundy convertible corvette for the day and we took off down the coast eating something at every city on the way.
Posted by Maureen Whann on 11th May 2014
Happy Mother's Day - I love u so very much!
Posted by Joyce Steele on 2nd March 2014
Matthew, you are never too late sending Love to your Grandma. You may not know that she was born in a leap year. Had she arrived just a bit later her Birthday would have been Feb. 29. We used to kid her that if that had happened she would only be 1 quarter of her age. She would reply "but look at all the Birthday parties I would have missed.". Like you, we love her and miss her so much. Sending you {{{HUGS}}} Cousin Joyce
Posted by Matthew Whann on 2nd March 2014
I know I'm a day late but happy birthday grandma! I love and miss you dearly!!!
Posted by Joyce Steele on 1st March 2014
Hi Megs, I tried to sign in yesterday to Wish You a Happy Birthday there in heaven but for some reason I couldn't. Then I got an email today so here it is...Sue & I are celebrating your birth. You made the World a nicer place by being in it. Love, Joyce & Sue
Posted by Phyllis/chuck Hugins on 1st March 2014
Many wonderful stories I could tell.. one birthday, Megan gave herself by giving me a massage! The last time we saw her was a hardship for her. She came down to San Diego on the Coaster to stay overnight. All she showed was cheerfulness that made our visit so special! We thank all her dear family for keeping us in the loop!
Posted by Maryalice Bourdelais on 22nd January 2014
To my dear Mom, It has now been two years...doesn't seem like it...I watched your slideshow again and I am so impressed, so touched by your involvement in your life and especially by the quality of your friendships. I love you and miss you.
Posted by Joyce Steele on 12th May 2013
On this Mother's Day, as every day, we are thinking of you and missing you. Love, Joyce & Sue

It's Mother's Day. I love you!

Mom, I wasn't ready to let you go when you took your leave, and I'm still not ready now. I deeply regret if I hurt or angered any of my siblings by not contributing a leaf or article for your ceremony, but I have a Magnolia seed that will be a tree in your memory. I love you very much.

My wonderful friend's birthday.. Feb. 28.. and my trip to Memphis this week will certainly NOT be the same without the side trip to Tupelo..and strange how I still want to call almost on a monthly basis to catch up and be inspired by the wisdom and love that was always present with Megan... OH MY!!! how she is missed..
Posted by Matthew Whann on 2nd March 2013
I loved the "me and grandma" time! R.I.P. grandma for I WILL see you again in the heavens!!!
Posted by Matthew Whann on 2nd March 2013
Megan was my lovely grandmother! My favorite memory was when I was only 5 years old she would usually always go to the grocery store at night around 8 if I remember. Well she had and old VW bug and she would always take me with her. Seat belt laws weren't in effect so I would always stand up in the back of the car lol. Now I know it's just a trip to the store but to me it was very FUN!
Posted by Kay Moynahan on 1st March 2013
With a grateful heart, today we begin a new year of our friendship. God made us soul mates because our stories, dreams, hugs and prayers are meant to be shared. You continue to deeply touch so many lives. Beautiful family! Much love! I love your tributes, WOW!

Posted by Alice Velasco on 1st February 2013
hi babe, This is really hard. It's been over a year and I haven't found words to tell you how much you mean to me. You were my childhood, my friend and my protector. I loved watching you do crazy and wonderful antics. I'll always love you, me
Posted by Joyce Steele on 1st February 2013
Megan, You are missed. The world was a nicer place with you in it. Sue & I send our love.
Posted by Krista Peterson on 24th January 2013
It was our pleasure and blessing to have met Megan in Breckenridge soon after we purchased our condo in 1998. Our back doors faced each other and whenever we were visiting there it was always a pleasure seeing her and catching up. Loved her fox stories. We always missed seeing her after she moved. Thank you Maureen for informing us of her passing. Definitely, forever missed. Krista and Rod

Dear Aunt Peggy, I can't believe it has been a year since you earned your ^^angel wings^^ (as we call it in the world of childhood cancer). I'm sure you are enjoying health and happiness in heaven. Hugs to you...and please pass one on to Christian from me.
Posted by Maryalice Bourdelais on 22nd January 2013
I'm lighting this candle for you mom...today is the first anniversary of your passing. What I miss the most is calling you on the phone and pretending we are meeting in Hawaii or some other place for lunch. I feel blessed that you were my mom and I honor your journey. Hope you are having an adventurous one now...you always wanted to be a free spirit. I love you!
Posted by Kay Moynahan on 3rd June 2012
Deep in my soul I hear us laughing, solving dilemmas, sharing loving stories of our 12 kids or theirs, or rushing off to sit a while over a HFS. We'll remain two, in one shoe, and the grands will grow up never without our hot fudge sundae stories. Thank you my Friend, I love you.

To honor our love for Megan some of her Tupelo, Mississippi friends met at one of her favorite places for lunch on her birthday February 28th. We celebrated her life, took note of her gifts to each of us and gave thanks for the grace we received from knowing her. Pictures of the event have been posted with thanks to Ruth Jaeckel for the camera work.
Posted by Phyllis/chuck Hugins on 1st March 2012
Dear family our thoughts and prayers are with you all! Thank you for sharing our dear friend's life. She was an angel...we will miss her!

Happy Birthday Aunt Megan! I know there are a lot of people in Heaven who love you and are celebrating with you. Birthday (((HUGS))) to you, Sandy and family
Posted by Chris Vickery on 7th February 2012
Megan and I went to a lot of plays when she was here, and we always called each other every day. We would ask "who's driving today?" and we had so much fun. I missed her when she moved to Mississippi, but me and my daughter did see her once in Tupelo. She is still my best friend, because I put her name in my Millennium Bank e-mail!!

This post from Delores (Dee) Saunders, Tupelo friend Megan, you were a good friend to me. We spent many wonderful times together & with other friends. You are going to be greatly missed. Thank God you are no longer in pain. Dee
