Candle lit by Bonnie Sandler on June 28th, 2016

we are grieving with you for the loss of our dear Meg. She was such a bright presence, always upbeat, clear of mind and purpose, with a strong will, no one could resist.
I will miss her greatly.

It always catches me off guard when suddenly a person goes missing from my life. How could this happen? Where did she go? I'm sure you're right, she's at peace and out of pain, living in Glory with Jesus. I suppose we all have a long and winding path to travel before we get there ourselves.
She certainly left us better people for having known her. She gave me a lot of strength and courage just knowing her. Whenever I have a moral question before me, I think, "What would Meg do?" She goes on making my path easier even after she's gone. We were lucky to know her for the few years that we did

I am so sorry about Meg's passing. I knew she was ill as I saw her sister recently at a Finn lodge meeting in Aberdeen, and then last week I received an email letting me know she had passed. Her parents were good friends of my parents. She was a beautiful soul and a fellow classmate. My sincere condolences to you and her entire family. Ann Koski Smith

Meg, you were ,one one my Jr high school, and high school friends. At one point I had a massive crush on you, but I was much to shy to approach you. Well, you will be totally missed by me, but you are now pain free, and dancing with the Angels. My prayers and thoughts go out to your sister, and the entire family. And Rusty,  my condolences to you and the immediate family as well.

I knew Meg through Junior and Senior High School and she was always loving and caring toward all.  I will forever remember her smiling face and her kind words spoken to me.  I am praying for all family members to "rejoice in the Lord" for He knew the time had come to call her home. She will be missed and remembered by all forever.

I met Meg in junior high in Aberdeen. I was only there about 3 ears but we became close friends.  We have not seen each other much over the years but kept in touch, several times on Skype the past few years.    She was one of the most interesting, strong-minded and caring people I knew.  I'm sad I can't talk to her any more but I'm happy she's whole and well with the Lord.

I will always remember Meg as that spirited and enjoyable conversationalist, never lacking for an opinion.  I am glad we never had any insurmountable disagreements for I shall have surely lost the argument! :-)

Meg and I shared a house in Aberdeen for about an year and she lives in my heart. We cooked we laughed and we travelled to Europe together. My daughter is in UCLA now Meg I wanted to see you so badly.
