Joel & family,
Our sympathy to you all in the loss of Meg. We were so very sorry to hear of this news. She always seemed like such a nice person. We are thinking of you.

I wish I had the right words, just know we care and are thinking and praying for all of you. Meg will be missed.

My deepest sympathies to Meg’s family. She was my dental hygienist for 30 years where we shared mostly one sided conversations in that chair. She was such a vibrant joyful person and always greeted you with such genuine enthusiasm whenever, wherever she saw you. May you find peace and comfort in your joyous loving memories of her.

Hoke, Phil, Holly, McKenna, Connor, Adam (and Rachel)
Dick, Bonnie and families
I don't know of a time I didn't know Meg. Growing up together was great in a small town. I am sure there is a reason why she had to leave so soon, however, we just don't know yet. I will keep you all close to my heart and prayers until there is a different normal to your lives. I love you all and pray the memories, and her contagious laughter will help get through the hard days.

Our brand new family was positioned and blessed to begin a grand, expanded, loving forever relationship. Than dear LORD our heart break occurred. We have no answers only the belief that Meg , our Love, had beautifully completed her job on earth and than realized her.son Adams’ dream wedding with his bride Rachel. Meg & Hoke forever.

Meg was a kind, sweet and loving person. Her friendly smile and laughter will be missed but not forgotten. Hoke, God bless you and your family.

She will be missed by MANY!

Hoke & family~ We are so saddened to learn of the devastating, and untimely, loss of your sweet Meg. We know your hearts are hurting, and wish that we could lighten this pain cast upon you. You are in our prayers for God's comfort to embrace you, and give you peace. May she rest in the arms of the angels, and may the wonderful memories of your time together help the healing process. God bless you all.

Prayers for the Gray family

There is a special place in heaven for Meg! I will always remember her infectious smile. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Meg didn't know a stranger... every time we saw you both, Meg made us feel as if we just spoke yesterday. She was a very special and caring person, as everyone has attested. God bless you, Joel, and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Meg was the best aunt I could have ever asked for! I joined the Gray family a little late when I was 8 and Meg welcomed me in with open arms! She always went out of her way to include me and treat me like one of her own. She lit up every room she entered and was so much fun to be with. I am going to miss her so very much.

My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. May you always be surrounded with fond memories.

What a wonderful lady and a beautiful couple (Hoke & Meg) everyone should take notice and hope to find their soulmate. Thinking about you always… Hoke! Love Brad

My sincerest sympathies to Hokey and the family. I had the opportunity to make Meg’s acquaintance when she was appointed by Wooster City Council to serve on the Charter Review Commission in 2010. Over the course of months of commission meetings, Meg always did her homework, and was always prepared to make meaningful contributions to commission deliberations. Beyond that, she had both patience and a keen sense of humor. I’m grateful to have had the chance to know her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.

Our sympathy goes out to all of Meg's family, to Dr Boreman and his staff, and to all who were her patients for so many years. She was such an excellent hygienist who will be difficult to replace, but her real gift was the way she treated her patients. She was kind, caring, and competent...a joy to be around. We will miss her greatly.

I Have no words that I can write that will help ease your pain and loss. Just know I'm lifting you all up in Prayer for comfort during this difficult time.
Meg was an Amazing lady. The world looks a little different now without her .
But her memory will be around forever .
Hug's Hoke and family
Our sincere condolences,

Our sincere condolences to you and your family Hoke. Meg was certainly one of a kind and will be missed!
