    Angela and Nick,
    Words can not express how sorry we are for your loss. The love you two had for your mom was clearly shown in how hard you advocated for her. We wish we could be there to show our love and support but please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

    Angela, Nick, and Family,

    Words can describe how amazing your mother was. I feel bad for people who did not get the chance to meet/know her. She was one of a kind with one of a kind humor. She was well loved by all and I will miss her tremendously. Sending love , as the Meyer family will always be here for you. ,
