Missing You

Today Meridith I am missing you. I have thought about you alot lately. I meet a girl in the singles ward about your same age she will turn 23 in the next couple of weeks. She reminds me of you, she has that same wit about her. She says whats on her mind and I appreciate that. She told me about a friend of hers that, that died similar to the way you did, it was her twin sister that was driving. I guess Heavenly Father needed a bunch of strong faithful young women back home. She is leaving for BYU-I and a couple of weeks. She asked me about you, and we talked about our going to the Nauvoo for your work. I know you are where you are suppose to be, but some days its hard to not have you here. Haylee is a doll we love her so much. I know you would have loved her too. We talk to her about you, she knows she has a Aunt Mer-Mer and that you are in heaven and now tippi is there with you. When I see little girls at the airport in pink converse I think of you. Haylee has had them. Brett and Brittany bought her a pair last year for Christmas, she wore them alot. You would love Brittany she is a wonderful young woman, she is a great wife for Brett and a wonderful mom to Calan. Calan is so cute, we miss them not living close. but it has been good for them to live away. Aaron and Kim finally got married and it was nice. I hope that someday it will be for forever. Im just missing you, but you help keep me strong. I love you.

The ache never goes away, does it? Meredith was so great. She taught me a lot and I was just her adviser. I am excited for you to be able to do her work.

I guess my ache will never go away either. It is the price of life, I suppose.

Britt and Brett said...

This made me cry before I got even half way through. I wish SO bad that I could have at the least met her and cannot wait for my chance to know her!

Can't wait to see you guys in a couple weeks!!

I'm sorry that you have to be away fom Meridith for now. Thanks be to God that it is just for now and that you will be with her again.

How wonderful that, being so young, she still left such a great legacy. She truelly touched so many lives.

I love her and of course I love you my dear friend.

Sweet thoughts. Thank you so much for sharing them. I appreciate that we all can talk openly about her because she was such a light and we all still feel her shining on us:) Love you.

That was a very touching post. It is so hard to loose our loved ones. I am so grateful for our knowledge that families are forever.

Our family loves you each and your family. I especially stand amazed at your personal strength and am grateful to have you as a friend. (In fact, if I remember correctly - the first time you ever met me I was about to faint at the zoo... so, thanks for your personal strength in more ways than one.)

I have a friend who found your blog through mine and has emailed me. She would like me to send that email to you. She has been inspired by you and this post. I will send the email along to you!

Sending our love!
