Meredith will be greatly missed. I remember when I first met him, he showed me the different items he made out of popsicle sticks. When he made the airplane he was so proud. He stopped by the trust to show me what he had made and explained how he made it. It was always showing me the different things he came up with. RIP Dear Meredith. You will be missed.
