    We adopted our Sam from Megan almost two years ago. In our conversations, and texts, I mentioned to Megan that she was a very special person for doing what she does. Megan is an inspiration to all of us who adopted the dogs that she rescued. The entire canine community is in mourning. She will be missed. Our deepest condolences to Megan’s family and friends. Heavan gained another angel.

    It’s so hard to imagine this world, not to mention the world of rescue, without you in it. The world was definitely a better place with you in it! Your heart, determination, grit and passion, for those that can’t speak for or help themselves will miss you terribly. They will be there to greet you! Till we meet again, friend.

    I’m sorry Miss Gail. I will get you added! My dearest condolences to you.
    People ask how I’m doing? Which is a weird question considering? I in return ask how they are? We all lost her. But actually we all gained her. God bless her.

    I still have no words. My family knew Megan as a teen when we would set up our kettle corn business in Winedale for festivals. She was a doll! If my dad had another daughter he would have wanted it to be her! She was such a sweet, funny spirit! I know my parents were there to welcome her home! (She was the only one I ever gave the kettle corn recipe to).
