Saying goodbye once is hard. But saying it multiple times? One can only ponder over life and recognize how fragile we are as beings. As children, we hear about superheroes and how invincible they are, but there is no way to prepare for death once we are forced to come face to face with it. It truly is one of the hardest lessons to learn.

In March, I said goodbye to my Grandma. Today, I say farewell to another gem in my life, one of the most wonderful human beings, Meagan Smith. Meagan and I spent time together in children’s choir, mission trips, and retreats. Truthfully, there are not enough words to describe how beautiful she was inside and out. Her loss is a lot to process right now. But one thing that I am certain of is the lasting impact she left on this world. She meant a great deal to a myriad of people and taught others the value of unconditional love and the value of service, faith, and dedication.

Meagan, I hope your rockin’ out with Jesus right now and partying it up. You are in the thoughts and prayers of so many people. Know that you made this world more beautiful and allowed people to grow richer in faith, hope, and love. Your spirit was incredible and will continue to thrive in all your friends and family.

I will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope that you are resting peacefully. Love you so much lady.
