We'll have more on this in next week's edition of the Norwood News. But here's a quote from Charlop's colleague at Montefiore Medical Center, David Appel, who kicked off the celebration with a few words and memories.
Appel said that at the time of her death, Megan was "Totally rocking, feeling great, involved in a million different things. She was going to get every kid in the Bronx to graduate from high school and go to college."
He said she "left on good terms with everybody" and called her an "indomitable spirit."
Dozens of others echoed these statements with stories and kind words of their own. Several people started their memories off with: "She was my hero."
