"Miss you."

"Today Meghan, you would have been 24 years old. I remember her 11th birthday she invited me to come to coney island with her parents and friend. I had the best day of my life, when they dropped me off at home Meghan handed me a paper with her phone number and said, "call me tomorrow, you better call me". I did call her, and everyday after. From that moment on she became more to me than just a little cousin, she became my sister, my best friend. This whole week leading up to your birthday I just haven't been myself, infact, ever since your death I haven't been myself.  The best part of me died along with you that night. Happy birthday in heaven Meghan."

"I am living my life alone now Meghan and I know you are by side as I roam this lonely earth without you and I see the signs you give me. A piece of my heart went with you and I know you will be there to greet me when my journey upon this earth has ended!!! Thank you my dear sweet child for making me a Mom."

"I cannot believe it is two years you are gone, it's still hard for me to comprehend the fact that I really will never be able to see or speak to you ever again. You are always in my thoughts."

"Meghan was truly the best friend you could ever ask for. I was lucky enough to be cousins with her, even though we were more like sisters. She could make anyone laugh and just had such a fun and silly personality. She was beautiful on the inside and the out. She will never truly be gone because she will always live on in my heart and in the heart of her loved ones. RIP to my sweet cousin, my other half."

"Meghan was a kind and funny girl who was taken too soon from us. Wish it had ended differently and you had made better decisions. Love you and miss you so much."

"Meghan was a sweet and loving soul.  She made us proud in so many ways.  Her kindness was reflected in her daily live and how she nurtured the fact she cared so much for people who were less fortunate than her. Her beautiful red hair was of rare color and her eye color was given to her by her Grandma and her Mom.  We can never understand why she was taken from us so tragically and hope to seek justice for the way she passed away. Her spirit will live with us forever."
