Reno, it's almost a year since you have gone home. A day doesn't go by that I don't think of you. Your children have reached mile stones during this year. What a blessing they are. I love you and miss you dearly. Love, Quack

I had always been a customer at Dr. Meadows animal clinic for my four dogs that always visit DR. Meadows for medical follow ups. My pets loved him and so as my family and friends that visit him. He was like a best friend to my pets. I do not know what other doctor that would care for my pts as much as he did for them and he taught me things on I did not know about how to care for my pets. We all will be missing you DR. Meadows. May God be with you forever.

I have always wondered what happened to Reno. We were teammates on the Andersen Cardinals on Guam in 1966. I remember him as a great friend and an all around good person. I wish i could have found out where he was sooner. My prayers are with him and his family.

Quentin will be missed so much by all of us at the Mobile SPCA where he dedicated the last few years towards helping our homeless shelter animals and by having a discount spay/neuter clinic. He performed over 600 surgeries in 2011 at his clinic at the Mobile SPCA and helped countless animals. We will always remember his strive for perfection, how he cared for the animals and his sense of humor. I will personally miss him as he was a friend and gave the best hugs! It is a loss for us all. May he rest in peace and may his family and friends take comfort in knowing he is in a better place now...

God Bless Quentin Meadows

Quentin Meadows (we called him "Reno" in college) was my roommate for one summester at Tuskegee. We were both in the marching and jazz band together and he will always have a special place in my heart. He was a good friend and I will never forget him.

One last thing; every morning Reno would wake me up with music by "Gino Vannelli". He loved the music of Gino Vannelli and I became a great fan too. He also came to visit me once, when I lived in Jackson, Ms. (I will never forget it)

God Bless you Reno; love you like a brother.

Your friend forever,

Aaron Latham (otherwise known as Arab in college)

We met many years ago on the Island of Guam. Our fathers were in the Air Force and that is how we met. Looking back on that time it brings back a lot of fun memories. Unfortunately being part of a Air Force family you travel a lot and our travels have taken us in different directions and therefore was never able to cross paths again. Dr Meadows you will be greatly missed. Friends always Jesse and James Mason (The Twins), Columbus, Ohio
