Jesse. I just found this. Thank you for your kind words. I hope they’re heard by those in a position to listen. I also hope it can lead people in need to ask for help. I suffered chronic pain for years when Meredith as a preteen, so she knew I’d understand, but still told me very little.

Sounds like you’ve handled the same thing for a while. Please keep handling it. It’s worth every day and every struggle to wake up to a new chance.

Sincerely, Carson (Meredith’s mom)

    Thank you Carson, this means a lot especially coming from you. I agree that every day is a new chance, and I hope you and your family are finding some sort of peace. I can’t imagine what you are going through, but I have seen the intense impact Meredith had on our community and know she is deeply missed.
