the loss of a dear friend


this morning i found out that we have lost a dear, sweet friend. . .
and my tears won't stop flowing.

Megan Smith is a wonderful woman that i met when we first moved here to Buffalo.
always upbeat and smiling. full of laughter and fun. . . she was a joy to be around!
we hit it off from the start and she became a very good friend to me and my family.
her hubby Ryan and my hubby Pace even started a business together!
it was kismet that we met in this life.

it is heartbreaking to say. . . but today. . . in the early hours of the morning. . .
Megan lost her fight to Leukemia.
it's hard to understand why such a wonderful, beautiful young woman would be taken away from this Earth so soon. . .
but, Heavenly Father must have needed her more.

she fought her battle hard. . . but now she can be at peace.

we want everyone out there to send their thoughts. . . prayers. . . and love towards Megan's family and loved ones. . .
*especially* to her husband Ryan and their sweet baby girl Rylee.

you can visit this site to find out more about Megan, Ryan and Rylee and their *incredible* story, strength and character.

Prayers for Megan

we will love and miss you Megan SO much.
this world won't be the same with out you.

Oh my, I'm so very very sorry for your loss. :(

I went to the website & even though I don't know Megan, tears are flowing from my eyes too.

I have a friend who is in RPCI right now, 8+wks post bone marrow transplant, after being diagnosed in March with AML. It's such a fight, and just not fair that anyone who goes through it shouldn't WIN it.

I'm truly sorry for your loss. This is heartbreaking. I feel like crying and i don't even knew her but the way you wrote about her was very special.
I want to believe everything happens for a reason and if so, maybe she has a bigger mission to do now. My condolences to you and her family.
