You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, or be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
"smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
Everyone leaves footprints in your memory, but the ones that leave footprints in your heart are the ones you will truly remember.

Help us to build a book of stories, and capture the life of Megan through your memories that will be shared with her daughter. Visit the Memories or Life Story page and tell a story or moment that you want to share. You can also upload your pictures or link to other media.
