  1. No words can express magnitude of this loss, Meagan’s passing will be mourned by so very many. Heartfelt sympathy and condolences.

  2. Meagan,

    In your time here with us, you made such a huge and positive impact on so many people’s lives whether it was with the people that you interacted with through your jobs or just your friends. I, for one, considered you “my rock” and I have no doubt that there are numerous others that feel the same way I did. I knew, no matter the situation, you were a phone call away and I could always count on you to help me through. Regardless of your impact here on earth, God obviously had a bigger and better plan for you and, for us, our time with you was cut short. I love and miss you dearly, Meagan. Until we meet again…

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Syapin, Reed, Fielding and Stephenson families and her many friends that were like family.

    Mark and Starlett

    Cheryl and Rick,
    We are so sorry for your loss of your beautiful Meagan. It seems just like yesterday that we were paddling around the pool with our huge tummy lumps, Cheryl. I can still picture Meagan and Michael playing in the sandbox together. We are heartsick for the two of you and wish we could offer more than words.

  8. Dear Cheryl,

    I am very sorry for your great loss. May the Lord strengthen you with His infinite love and peace! May He embrace you and your family at this difficult time!


  9. Meagan was my first friend. She was the first person I wasn’t related to that I really cared about. She was better than most of us, but always humble.

    We love you, Meagan. We love you, Reed’s.

  10. Dear Cheryl and Cindy,
    My heart is broken over the loss of your precious Meagan. I have been connected to your family forever it seems. I remember you Cindy, as Gail’s friend when you were classmates. Then I was connected to your mother, Dorothy, first as a patient in Dr. Moss’ office where I worked as his nurse, then as my Sunday School classmate. I remember your family, Cheryl in the early years of Aldersgate when Meagan was a child . I can’t imagine losing a daughter, Cheryl. My heart breaks for you and all your family. Praying that God will lift you up and strengthen you in this time of sadness.

  11. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you the strength and endurance to get through this hardship and guide you through this

  12. I send my most sincere condolesences and deepest sympathies to the Reed family and the Syapin family and all of Megan’s friends. May God be with you and hold you close, to give you rest and peace. I am so sorry.

    Lee & I knew Meagan since she was in the womb. Her soul has always been a beautiful, kind soul. Her short time with us in this realm was filled with love and always thinking of others – humankind or animals. The fitting tribute to her life would be that her thoughtfulness to others continue on. Rick, Charlene, Cheryl, Derek, Casey, Matt – and everyone whose life was lovingly impacted by Meagan – your loss is unimaginable. We love you. May GOD give you comfort in your loss. Meagan is one in a million…

  14. Rick & Charlene, Casey, Derek and Jessica and children, Meagan’s mom and other family members, I am so deeply sorry for your great loss. May God comfort you during this time of sorrow.
