My Beautiful Sister, Meredith lost her battle with cancer today at 1:35 this morning. She was a funny, creative strong person. She loved animals more than people. I was blessed to have her as a sister and friend. Please send thoughts and prayers of light and wishes for a peaceful transition. She leaves behind Mark, her husband of 25+ years, 4 beloved dogs (Trapper, Warlock, Lillie and Baby Taz) and a great cat, Caruso (who she and her husband adopted from their toolshed). I will miss her terribly, but send her love and light as she continues on her journey.
