Until we meet again

Our family experienced the full spectrum of joy and grief this week as my niece Kate welcomed her new son Brennan then days later we lost my dear niece and God-daughter,Meghan, just two weeks shy of her 24th birthday.

Meghan was born with a hole in her heart. After it was surgically fixed, her heart needed a pace maker to regulate the heartbeat. In all these years, no one ever led us to believe her lifespan might be shorter than normal.

This past week she passed away from acute congestive heart failure. She was a single mother, leaving behind a two year old son, Adam. Our family is just heartbroken over the loss of Meghan. Thankfully we are all very close and will do whatever it takes to make sure her son is cared for and loved.

Meggie, we will keep you close in our hearts, until we meet again.
