    I am saddened by the news of Meredith passing. She was one of the gentlest and kindest souls I knew. During high school, she was my basketball partner/mentor. She was a senior, I was a freshman. She wasn't threatening nor did she act superior. She was strong (physically and mentally), funny and smart and taught me a lot during those few months. I was honored to have been touched by her spirit. She touched a lot and we should all pay it forward in her memory.
