“Even on the darkest days, I will stand tall and find the sunlight.” –sunflower quote.
Morgan was always full of positive energy that radiated all around her. She kept the sunlight on everyone else and never made herself the center of attention. She shared her zest for life everywhere she went. Morgan was an avid fan of country music, cars, animals, and sunflowers. She was a jack-of-all-trades, there wasn’t anything she couldn’t fix, create, or build. Morgan and Cody shared a love for the outdoors, nights around the fire with friends, taking care of their animals, working on cars, and racing.
Morgan battled Angiosarcoma with all her might and never gave up. She had a passion and drive that couldn’t be matched. When you think of Morgan, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember life is precious so live life to the fullest. “We are not here for a long time, we’re only here for a good time.” –Joe Hunt.
