    What a wonderful picture of Megan! That will be how we remember her . . . smiling, laughing, loving, and always an inspiration to everyone. She was a one-of-a-kind and we are so happy just to have been able to call her our friend. One light has gone out on Earth, but now heaven has one more! I know Z’s tail will be wagging because he will be so happy to be with her again! Just know that she lives in so many hearts and she was loved by so many. Please let us know if there is anything you need or anything we can do for you.
    Love to each of you!
