Know your daughter left a mark on this world. It's been over fifteen years since she was my student, but I still remember Meghan clear as day: brilliant, loving, generous in spirit, positive, expressive, open minded - a beautiful human being.

Meg, I will always remember your big blue eyes and bright smile. You made the days go by at Sonic much faster with your bubbly personality! I remember being so in awe when you told me about roller derby that I had to try it for myself ;) I am so thankful to of met you. You left us way to soon but may your family find comfort in knowing you are in a much better place. Rest Easy Meg. You are missed dearly.

I was so completely shocked and saddened to read the news of Meghan's passing. I first met her when she was serving as a hostess at the restaurant in Ellenton... for the longest time, I came in every Friday evening to pick up a pizza. Meghan introduced herself to me the first day she started working there, and I quickly learned that she was an intelligent and unique young lady.

In the years that followed I would run into her when she was skating with the Bradentucky Bombers, and once in a while, at the library (where I work) in downtown Bradenton.

Though only saw her once in a blue moon, I will miss her. My sincere condolences to Meghan's friends and loved ones.

Dear Flanagan family,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences in your time of loss. I was privileged to have met and known Meig through my daughter, Samantha. She was an independent, kind, warm, smart and caring young woman. She stayed with us a couple of times and I always enjoyed her company.

Dear Matt and Eileen...I remember moving here in 1994 and watching Meghan and Little Matt ride bikes and play on the sidewalk side with Britt and Jess, they always smile and waved and became like family when Krista used to babysit. Krista and Meghan worked at Applebees together up in the plaza and Meghan would hug me when I came up to visit Kris...Matt told me how happy Meghan was living her dreams of traveling when he replaced our AC unit. Please know you are in our hearts and prayers with much love. Mitch, Lori, Krista, Roderick II and KaiAnna Marie xoxox

Meig, thank you so much for sharing your light with us. I will always remember the first day we became friends, and I will never forget the first time you knocked me right off my skates :) You have touched so many lives in such a short time, and although I'm going to miss you terribly, I'm grateful to have had the chance to know you.

The stars that burn the brightest burn for the shortest time. This is so true of Meig. I am hearbroken that she is not in the world in person now although she will always he here in spirit, for such a bright spirit can never be extinguished. I expected and looked forward to many many times in the future when she would pop in to see Phillipe, with her "hello love!" and sit and chat about something she was doing or would do, because Meig was always doing something. She packed more experiences into her short life than most people will in a lifetime. She was the most special person. She was brave and undaunted, and funny, and kind and open and sweet and probably way too trusting. I am so, so sorry for the loss that her parents, family and friends are experiencing, I am distraught myself. God be with all who are grieving her loss. She wil always hold a very special place in my heart.

My heart goes out to you as you mourn the loss of your beautiful daughter Meghan, I am praying that God brings you peace and comfort in the days ahead.

Every time I've thought of you since I met you 8 years ago it has brought a smile to my face. And you will continue to make me smile. You are a beautiful person, Meig; always smiling and laughing in an infectious way. It's tragic to see you go. You are greatly missed, Meig.
