“While reading Meredith’s bible she had underlined:

2 Peter 5:6-7, 10-11
5 Humble yourselves, therefore under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
6 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

I find this for the first time on the night/day I needed to hear from her the most. NOTHING is a coincidence. God knew I needed to see this. He and Meredith are watching over us as she celebrates her 1st birthday in heaven.” – Robin

“One year ago today I laid beside my baby sister as Jesus took her home. In her short life she taught me so much about faith, strength and love. She was an inspiration to anyone who met her and I will miss her every day until I am reunited with her one day in Heaven. I am so proud of our family and how we have continued to stay strong and celebrate her life, but please continue to pray for us as being without her will always be difficult.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7″ – Lyndsi

“It’s one year since my best friend went to heaven. I think about her everyday, and she visits me in the most random ways; most recently, in my dreams, always holding my hand. We don’t say anything, we just sit and hold hands. I miss her, but I know she’s not far, and I most definitely know that I’ll see her again. #24” – Paige

“Thank you for everything you did in my life. You taught me so much more than basketball and you did it all with a smile. You were there for Chris when he needed a friend and I can’t thank you enough for that. When I wanted you to meet my friend with the same condition as you you welcomed her with open arms. You were an amazing warrior. Always with a smile. You made the world a better place” – Brittany

“Do you ever have those reoccurring memories about someone at the same time, every time you do an activity? I cut my leg shaving when I was going to meet Meredith for lunch one day and I remember telling her about it. Now every time I shave my legs (silly, I know.) I think about her. I am so grateful for that. Meredith went to heaven a year ago today but her soul lives on in people like me she touched. We miss you and can’t ever bear to forget you.”- Kelly

“Today marks one year of when the strongest person I know, Meredith, went to Heaven and is now our guardian angel. She lived life to its fullest and fought harder than anyone can imagine. She was a winner on and off the court and never gave up hope. She taught us all–what really matters in life and how to always be courageous. ILYTG #24” – Maria

“A year has passed, but not a day goes without cherishing the moments we had. Love and miss you our guardian angel Mert – #24″ -Satu

“When someone you love dies, you never quite get over it…You just learn to slowly go on without them… but ALWAYS keeping them tucked safely within your heart. It’s been a year Mert and I am pretty sure your the best guardian angel out there. I miss you” – Jordon

“How has it possibly been a year already… I miss you so much but know you’re always nearby. Your strength and faith continue to inspire me every day. Miss you 24!” – Jen

“A year ago today I lost one of my best friend’s….Mere you are missed more than you know. We love you and miss you…..I know you are doing great things up above! Praying for the Legg’s and their family. #24” – Adam

“I cherish every memory we had and am so thankful for the sister-like friendship we shared. There’s never a day that passes that I don’t think about you. You are my role model, my inspiration, my best friend & I miss you so much. I love you Mere, happy heavenly birthday” – Chelsea

“Can’t believe it’s been one year… What we would do to hear your voice, receive one of your hugs or share a laugh with you. So thankful for the wonderful memories until we meet again. Forever etched into our hearts. Missing my girl” – Janet

“One year ago today heaven gained the most beautiful angel and one of my best friends. I will never forget all that you taught me and continue to teach me. Thank you for all the laughs and memories. See you again one day, Mere! One year down, a lifetime with our Savior to go!! Praying for you today” – Bailey
