I have sat here for a very long time, wondering what I should type. What could I say to even do justice to really truly describe the amazing woman who was our friend, Meghan. Sometimes when things happen like this, words seem empty or even scarce. I have thought about Meghan and her family a lot this weekend as I know many of you have as well. We all loved her. She was a friend, an inspiration, a mother, wife, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, a Breast Cancer Warrior, amazing writer, a giver, a Red Phoenix Rising. So I decided to write a tribute blog post to her. My blog is all about Living Wonderfully Made, and boy did Meghan emulate that. So, here it is…..
Meghan, Red Phoenix,
There is no one way to describe you, but there are many instances that describe who you were to so many people. Over the past two years I have watched a woman who fought with everything she had not only to fight against cancer, but to bring more kindness into the world. See, Meghan, that is who you were…. You were kindness. Your infectious smile and your beautifully written words to describe some of the hardest things to have to write about was nothing short of talent. Your beautiful little boy is an example of the love you and your husband had together and he I know will not only grow to be a strong man one day, but also will grow to continue on your legacy of kindness, because, you instilled that in him. Your love for people was apparent in the continued stories that we all read of how you impacted so many.
As I close my eyes to picture you in my mind, I think about the times we spent playing softball, little girls just wanting to have fun, get dirty, and play! Over the years we all grew up, moved on, and started our families. Your friendships to those closest to you remained strong as you always knew how to make your friends feel special. I know this only because it is so apparent in how they talk about you. You were special to them Meghan, you were their treasured friend. Your family, now, this is where I get emotional, because oh Meghan, you were so special to them. The “Brown Sister’s” wow what a Foursome you all are. Each of you so unique, kind, special, and absolutely BEAUTIFUL in your own unique ways. I loved seeing your times together. A special bond of four amazing sisters that death can never take away.
Meghan you left us with a gift. Your presence on this Earth, even though we all feel it ended way too soon, your presence was a gift. Your continued crusade for spreading kindness and love is a gift that we all treasure. You have impacted so many and it will never be forgotten.
On sandy shores in Heaven, I am picturing you walking next to Jesus holding His hand and talking with Him about kindness and love. Meghan I know you are not here on Earth, but in Heaven you will be waiting for the ones that miss you so dearly here. A Red Phoenix Rising up above the clouds and flying towards a warm sunshine in the distance. You were a true example of what it means to LIVE Wonderfully Made, because Meghan, you were oh so wonderful!
