I became friends with Megan at Lowes Home Improvement. Megan was a warrior, she never gave up. She was a sweet soul who was great to be around.
Not long ago she messaged me that she would stop by and visit us at work before she went to her doctor's appointment. She made good on her promise and I hugged her and told her I loved her 💗 She looked the greatest that I have seen her in a long time. We laughed and had a wonderful visit, I just did not know it would be our last one 😔 She is dearly missed and loved. My prayers and condolences to her family 😥❤🙏

Oh Meg, I loved catching up with you whenever we would talk and Uncle Willie and I both loved making you laugh. May you rest in peace and may those of us who loved you remember the good times with joy and the peaceful feeling that comes from loving without reservation. Rest in peace! We miss you.

Megan and I attended Maryvale Prep together and were good friends! One of our favorite memories together was when we volunteered at a nursing home in Columbia, MD where her grandfather resided. It was an amazing experience.

I last saw Megan in 2018 when she visited me for a few weeks.

My sincere condolences to the family! To Megan, may your soul find peace, comfort and love in the arms of God! Love you!

I will really miss Megan. I enjoyed seeing her every Christmas at Chrissy's house just bee bopping happily around, helping to prepare the delicious food, joking around, etc.

I remember how much she loved being on that pontoon boat when we were members of the Carefree Boat Club. She took her seat, stretched out her legs on the cushion, and felt like she was on vacation.  She said, "I could get used to this."

Megan loved the warm ocean water, the warm sand beneath her feet, and the smile on her niece and nephews' faces. She enjoyed the little things in life like holding sweet baby Jax, making Asher laugh, and cracking jokes with Virginia.

She was a nice and friendly person that had a good sense of humor. She died too soon, and she will be missed.  I'm so glad that I was able to be with her for a little while in July at Topsail and at Chrissy and Ben's house in August. God bless you Megan!

I lived Nextdoor to Megan years ago, and when it came time for my family to move she was literally the only person who was there to help me transition. It was a big deal for me.
Thoughts and prayers for her family ❤️
