Meredith was such a beautiful spirit, she brought so much light to my childhood. I really looked up to her for a number of reasons she was such a breath of fresh air, she had the sweetest and calmest voice and the best smile. She will always be someone that I deeply admired and will always be considered a big influence on my life. If there is anything that I can do for family I will.

Dear Dave and Cheryl,
While I was at Norfolk General Hospital yesterday, I happened on a copy of the Hamilton Spectator where I read the profoundly heart breaking news of the passing of your daughter Meredith. Words seem so inadequate at a time like this so I only want you both to know that I am thinking of you and I pray that the God of all comfort, upholds you all in this time of your grief and sorrow.
