Meggs was the ninth of 10 children.

Plath, who is also a wedding photographer, reminded her followers Tuesday that she is “on a social media break due to a family death” and asked interested clients to email her via your website instead of sending you a private message.

According to Franklin County news outlet The Roanoke Times, Virginia State Police said Meggs was riding his electric bike around 10 p.m. in the right lane of a main road when a Honda Accord, allegedly riding in the same lane and in the same direction. He hit it.

Plath asked her Instagram followers for “space.”

In his obituary, his family described him as a “fun-loving” teenager who “enjoyed spending his time outdoors” and “playing practical jokes, sharing his understated sense of humor, and making his loved ones laugh.”

Micah also suffered from cerebral palsy caused by a brachial plexus injury that occurred during his birth, “which made it difficult for him to do the things he enjoyed so much.”

“Despite the physical difficulties he experienced, Micah never complained or allowed himself to be limited by his disability,” his loved ones shared, asking the United Brachial Plexus Network (UBPN) for donations “in lieu of flowers.”
