My deepest sympathy to each of the Lynch and Vartuli families, friend, co-workers, and members of the community. Meredith sounded like an incredible woman filled with that fire in her belly to make mountains move and leave her mark.
Alexis, thank you for allowing me to get to know your sister through all that you had shared about her. I know how deep your love and concern for others is; particularly when it came to how much you loved and worried about Meredith. It was and added privilege to meet her beautiful 3 children during one of their stays with you. Know that we will keep you and the rest of your family in our prayers.

Meredith was one of my first friends in the community. She made me a more involved community member than I’ve ever been before because there was always something to volunteer for. We were kindergarten class moms together, shared a ccd class for years, were on the nms pta and pow wow. I used to jokingly tell people not to make eye contact with Meredith if they weren’t willing to volunteer for something because as soon as she looked you in the eye boom you were in at least 2 new volunteer positions. That’s just how she was. Always giving to community and wanting the same from her friends. We will miss you dearly girl.

Meredith was always a class act. Someone funny, bright and deeply compassionate. She was a light, an inspiration and pure love to those who knew and loved her. She will be deeply missed. Another Star Shines in the Heavens tonight.
