Meg Korpi 

1953 – 2016

On June 19, 2016, Meg Korpi – my wonderful wife, committed partner and faithful friend – graduated from this life following a 3½-year journey with ovarian cancer.  At our wedding, she said she wanted to make me feel like “the most blessed man alive” to be married to her.  I did.  I miss her deeply, but am so glad she now is pain-free and cancer-free, and that I will see her again.

This article, which one of my publishers requested, relates how we felt about each other:

Tell her you love her.  Recently, when my wife, Meg Korpi, was dying of cancer, a longtime friend offered some advice I’m really glad I heeded: I should write and read to her a tribute, expressing what she’s meant to me and how much I love her.  (Short op-ed)

Meg’s Lasting Memories website has her obituary, plus stories about her – including some funny ones about the two of us – and pictures.

A lovely 5½ – minute presentation of Meg’s life (images and music) – created for her Memorial Celebration – is viewable online here.  Have Kleenex® handy.

I thank God for the 16 years we had together.  She envisioned and co-founded Rusty Wright Communications, and served it tirelessly as research scientist, editor, writer, board director and more.  Much of what you see on this website – including projects such as she described below – bears her fingerprints.

Perhaps you will join me in admiration and gratitude for this remarkable woman, a divine gift.

 

 

An excerpt from an earlier edition of Meg’s Page:

  Helpful advice  from our friends at
the Character Research Institute:   

 Rusty and I attended the NYC premiere of the movie Soul Surfer (now in theaters; available on DVD August 2), about championship surfer Bethany Hamilton and the aftermath of losing her arm in a shark attack.

Check out our review here.

Just for fun, here are some pictures from the Red Carpet and behind the scenes.
