Her little sister passed away yesterday...at 26. That should be a crime. She battled for five years with ocular melanoma, a very rare form of cancer. She's the beautiful, young woman in the royal blue shirt and glasses in this video. Her name is Meredith and she truly was God's Warrior. The faith that poured off of her in buckets was so inspiring. Through a terrible tragedy she kept pushing through and living her life to the fullest. We could all learn from that.
I can remember sitting at the house with Meredith and Trey, around Christmas of 1996 or 1997 when their parents went to the annual Holly Ball in town. She would have been 9 or 10. I really don't think we did anything but watch TV, but the kids were great and the Christmas spirit was alive. I still remember the beautiful decorations. The tree looked as if it were pulled straight from a home decor magazine with deep burgundy sashes and gold lights. That's the only memory I have of being with Meredith, my sisters could probably give you more since they are the same age.
That brings more tears. I only hope that we can all be warriors of God in the toughest of times. Wouldn't that be something?
Here is an amazing article showing Meredith's true spirit written by Adam Lucas.
