Megan was born with a light that shined so bright on everyone who knew her. She carried a spirit and joy for life . She never complained as Juvenile Huntington's Disease slowly took away her independence. She took whatever circumstance came her way and never let it stop her from what she wanted to do! She brightened every person's life with her witty jokes, funny faces and charm. She gave herself to others, sacrificed for others, and she always, always thought about others, always making sure to ask me to buy something for her brother and sister, a friend at school or offering a gift she received to share with others. She truly was an example of how to share our Savior's love with others. The Savior said, ‘Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven,’ and I know that Megan did just that. In lieu of flowers the family respectfully requests donations to Help 4 HD International's JHD Holiday Program at
