All those who knew Meredith were richly blessed. She was gracious, wise, compassionate and filled with good humor. She had an unfailing ability to see the good, and she rejoiced in it. In her last few years, Meredith found a good home in Epworth Manor, where the compassion she always showed to others was returned to her, measure for measure.
“But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”
