  1. Meridth was a high school classmate of mine and someone who always added a lively, positive spirit to any situation I ever saw her in. I am so sorry to learn of her passing. I’m sure her friends and family have many fond memories to comfort you. I am so very sorry for your loss. Bette

  2. I would like to extend my sincere sympathy to Meredith’s family. She was a wonderful person with a terrific sense of humor who always made people feel better. I have many fond memories of my mother, Julia Virkler Karcher, taking my brother Larry and I to visit when we were children. We kids all enjoyed playing together as my mother and Bert would enjoy “catching up” with each other.
    I hope that you all will be comforted by many of your own special memories.

    With love,

  3. “Dear Friend”
    Our friendship began in the year 1965,
    With some of the craziest schemes only roommates could ever contrive!
    We could make each other laugh and brighten the day,
    Not everyone understood, that was just “our way”!
    As our lives got busy with families and such,
    We always made sure that we kept in touch!
    An occasional visit, phone call, or note,
    It was always fun, like the weekend on the boat!
    Then there was the weekend, Bless your soul,
    You wiped out our bird feeder and the pole!
    So we have had lots of laughs and shed some tears,
    But our friendship has endured for forty nine years!
    This past year has definitely been “a trying one”,
    And in spite of that, we still laughed and had fun!
    You will never know, how much our “catch-up” evening, meant to me,
    And just how funny Ed’s wait for the “elusive pizza man” could be!
    I have counted every second of each long, winter day,
    Dreaming of great friends, picnics, and bon-fires out at North Bay!
    So my dear, dear friend, the one we call “Pooh”,
    I will remember you always and I know what I’ll do!
    I will put a smile on my face and remember the days,
    When you made my life better in so many ways!
    I will miss your smile and your laughter, and I will always care,
    And you will be in my heart forever, until I get there!
    I know you’re now free of all life’s strife and pain,
    Rest peacefully, my friend, until we all met again!

  4. May God keep you in His loving arms, old friend. I will miss your garage sales, seeing you at the Boutique, and our catching up on our kids. I will truly miss your laughter. RIP my friend. Joanne
