(December 04, 2006 – February 13, 2021)
Morgan Cheyenne Gain, 14, of Dublin Texas passed away February 13th, 2021 in a beautiful castle in Fort Worth, Texas called Cook Children’s Hospital. She was surrounded by superhero’s in scrubs who worked around the clock to give her the best comfort and care possible in her last days. Morgan battled a terminal genetic condition called Alpers disease in which there is no cure. However, Morgan became the first child in the world with her condition to start a trial at Stanford University, which slowed her condition, and gave her another 11 vibrant years in which she brought joy to those who knew her. It was during those years Morgan lived out her bucket list. She swam in the Gulf of Mexico, crawled along the beaches of sunny California. She jammed with her family at concerts, met a few celebrities, was in awe of the lights of Vegas and saw the majesty of the Grand Canyon. She loved aquariums and zoos, but most of all she loved everyone. Morgan defied all odds and she lived big. We are all better, more appreciative people for having been a part of her journey. She smiled every day of her life, even in to her last few days.She leaves behind her parents, John Gain and Dasa Gain, siblings Madison and Clayton. Grandparents Darrell and Lennell Cogburn, Bryan Atchley and Sandra Rhodes, John Gain Sr., Levera Garcia and her aunt Adina Rosales of Dublin. She also loved her nurse who became family over the years, Gloria Ezell. She was preceded in death by her sisters Keeley and Mikayla.In lieu of donations the family asks that you hug your child extra, pick up the phone and make amends with someone you love, adopt a shelter pet, or teach your child to include the special needs child at school. If it involves spreading love and smiles, then you’ve allowed the very essence of Morgan to live on. The family would like to thank Cook Children’s Hospital and Staff, special nurse Rebekah who took late lunches, and never left work on time because she was so caring and made sure Morgan had what she needed. We would also like to thank Stanford University, Houston Children’s Hospital, Angels of Care Pediatric Home Health, and everyone who has been a part of Morgan’s beautiful journey. We love her past the moon and stars and will miss her bigger than the depth of all the oceans. Ohana baby girl.
Graveside services will be held at the Barbee Cemetery, on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 2:00 pm.
