Hi Meagan,  Just wanted to send you a "happy birthday" wish today. Praying also, as I do often, for your family as I know this day is especially hard with you not here to celebrate with them. Hope you have a wonderful party in heaven today. Your beautiful smile will always be in our hearts.  The Stewart Family

Happy birthday my sweet girl.  I found the washer you sent me Sunday and saw the white butterfly today at exactly 1:58PM, the exact moment when you came into this world and forever changed my life for the better.  Today I have been thinking about that last birthday you had here on earth and how lucky I am that you invited me to go to the Reds game with you and your friends.  We had so much fun together.  I miss you so much that it hurts and I wish you were here. Everyone thinks that time heals everything, obviously they have never lost a child such as you.  For me, time makes the pain deeper and your absence greater.  I look for signs of you everywhere and in everything.  I know you are around watching over everything but I really wish you were here.  It is so hard to see all of your friends getting married, finding their dream jobs, having babies, and buying houses, and knowing you will never have the opportunity to experience any of those things.  I will never understand how or why God decided to take you while others right next to you survived.  I know it was not random but rather for a greater purpose.  I know it, but I can't accept it.  It is so unfair that you were taken, your kind nature and infectious smile that caused everyone to feel special in your presence.  I hope you are celebrating in heaven.
Love you whole in this world,
Mommy

I miss you so much Meag. I wish we could talk like old times at the pool. Things are even harder now than they ever were then. Oh what I would do to have another chat with you. I can't even begin to imagine the advice you would give me now as I've gotten older. I miss you Meag, send me something so I know you're there. Love you lucky--

love, kate

Hey Meagan,
Uncle Timmy and I cried through the Dateline episode about you. I know you'd be proud of your mom's bravery as she told your story, but our hearts ache for her and everyone who loves you. Please let her know that she made and continues to make the right decisions for you and in your honor. I hope those who watched the show understand your family's perspective of the twist of fate. Why couldn't you have been the one that lived? I think it's because God wants the best and He needed you. Even though we all wish that you would have been the one to live-would have given anything to make that happen, and begged God to heal you, He had better plans for you. I wish there was some way to heal the heartache and loneliness as a result of you being in Heaven. Wrap your arms around your mom and be with her, Dad, Victoria, and Sam. Help them find peace. You will always be in the hearts, thoughts, and prayers of all who love you.

HI Sweetie;
I just wanted to fill you in on a couple of things. The golf outing is scheduled for June 27( last Friday in June) and the Dateline episode on the stage collapse is set for this Sunday at 7 as long as the golf tournamant doesn't run late. I wish we could have had a golf delay for the concert.
I told your story to another mom suffering with guilt issues. I hope it helps. It seems like we never run out of guilt or pain. It is ironic that we all have or want to work in jobs that deal with the pain and suffering caused by others. It makes it hard to remember that we are still a family, that we still have a family but it is different than what it was. It has to be okay to celebrate the joys and triumphs of everyday life without  the accompanying feelings of shame for the celebration.  We have more joys than most and we have to remember that. You would not have wanted that any other way.
I hope you found somewhere warm to hang out for teh last couple of months.  I did see two butterflies fly across my windshield as I took Haley to the vet for her surgery. Thanks for checking on her. I actually smiled when I saw them. It was December and cold outside buthere they were. You would love the girls. Out of control doesn't do them justice but they are cute when they want to cuddle. They ate a porch light earlier this week. Sweet  
V has turned into alovely young lady. She had her interview for NKU yesterday and we are hoping that she makes it. She has a gift to counsel others and I hope they see that. We went to see Baby Jackson last weekend. He is super ging. You would be a  as muy uncle Alva would say GREAT aunt.  He is getting teeth and needs some Michigan wear. Daneille and Kevin are so cute. It makes my teeth hurt.
Sam is a beast. He is grinding up Otterbein and asking for more. He is now the frat president and as that had a meeting with the dean  to form a new part of student government.  He has really found a home at school.
Mom is having a tough time. She need so talk with you but feels that she can't hear your voice anymore. She needs you to kick her in the rear.
Me, I am just dad.  I miss you but I know you miss us too. Course, I know you are there in every butterfly and in every washer we find in strange places. You are also there in the 5:15am wake up alarm on my clock that hasn't worked in 8 tyears. Cute. It hasn't worked since.  But the one day I could sleep in, the alarm went out at 5:15. I actuaaly got a kick out of it. I needed the laugh.  
I have to go but rememebr I love you whole in this world. Tell everyone I said hello. Dad

Meagan,
As I'm sure you know my grandpa passed away last week. I don't remember if you ever got to meet him but I have a feeling you did. He always knew how special you were to our family and how special you were to me. I hope you've seen him in Heaven, he will make you smile. There's something comforting knowing that two of my favorite people are together even though I can't be with them. I love you Meag and continue to miss you everyday.

My sweetest Meagan,

We have come to another year’s end without you.  Everyone around us is buzzing with hopes, dreams, and aspirations for the New Year but I find myself instead looking back.  I catch glimpses of joyful times gone by and wonder if there will ever be joy in our lives again without you.  Each passing day grows darker for me as I miss you terribly.  I continue to see you in my dreams as a little girl, a special little girl who entered my life when I needed you most.  A special little girl who grew into a graceful, vibrant young woman destined to make a difference in the world.  As the days have turned into weeks; the weeks into months; the months into years, I have become angry and bitter as I grieve for you always.  I am angry that 2 years and four months after the loss of you we still have no answers. We still do not know what really happened.  We still do not how those you were with made it to safety and survived while you did not. I fear that we never will know. We still have no justice for you.  It is beginning to look as though we never will see those responsible for your death brought to justice.  I only wish that you had never gone to that stupid concert.  I cannot listen to certain songs or genres of music.  I HATE to hear anything about any concerts.  I cannot bear to think of what you must have felt and thought in that instant.  I am your mommy and I am supposed to be able to protect you from anything.  I wasn’t there to protect you.  There are days when everything feels like it is crashing in and I think, if I could only see Meagan or talk to Meagan everything would be okay.  Unfortunately, I cannot see you or talk to you in the ways we did daily. I keep thinking about what your life would be like today if you were here, especially since all of your friends are engaged, getting married, married, and having babies.  I find myself happy and heartbroken at the same time; happy for them but heartbroken for you that you will never have the chance to experience those blessed events and times.  I try to stay positive, especially for Samuel and Victoria but it is very difficult at times to hide the pain.  I hold you in my heart, my thoughts, and my dreams always.  I hope you know how proud and honored I have always been to be your mom.

I love you whole in this world,

Mommy
