Meredith London was 18 years old and had just graduated high school and was planning to start college in the fall. She was the one to go to about the latest fashion even though she liked to wear her jogging pants all the time. She was going to be comfortable and didn’t care what others would think.

Both girls were known for their big smiles, big laughs and big heart. When it came to listening to their friends problems, they would listen and give advice which was respected. They loved being together and spending time with their siblings and family.
