Faces of Meridith

Today Meridith you would be 22. I remember the day you were born. 2:59 am you came into this world. Our lives would never be the same. As a little girl you were shy, and didn't like your brothers to fight. You would watch Rachel and ask her all sorts of questions, embarrassing ones for the older sister. As a young women you knew who you were. I was always impressed by your voice and beauty. But you never thought your were beautiful. But you were. I think that made you even more beautiful. People would always comment on your beauty. Your whole earth life was ahead of you and Heavenly Father decided that it was time for you to return. Its not easy for me. not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I know that I should get use to you being gone, but I haven't. Amamda sent you flowers today. She thinks about you often. You came into this world and touched so many lives. I'm not sure that you even realize the lives you touched. It certainly came from that inner beauty that you had. I have come to realize that you must have known that you were sent here for a purpose. you stayed strong and your faith never waivered. Thanks for your example. You were always your siblings biggest supporter. You understand better than we do how important eternal families are.

When I read this, I was holding Eden and she just sat and stared at the pictures. It was like, "Hey I know her." It was the cutest thing.

Wanted to write yesterday, but we were traveling all day.
My thoughts are with you at this time. I love you and I love Mer Mer so much. The world was a better place because she graced it.
See you soon,
Natalie

Our family always thinks about Meredith, especially on her b-day. We remeber her as the beautiful young woman that she was. We miss her too. I still cry.....
