A funeral service was held in her memory on Tuesday.

“Megha knew how much of a force she was in the influencer space and how many women looked up to her, I told her all the time. We lost an angel too soon,” an Instagram fan wrote in reply to the post.

“Her posts brought so much confidence and light when I was struggling. She was always an angel, and beautiful inside and out. I am sorry for your loss and may she rest in peace,” another Instagrammer wrote.
