Meredith's family has set up a memorial fund for the Longmont Humane Society. As of January 14, $20,490 has been collected. Meredith's amazing spirit has certainly impacted a great number of human lives and, in turn, will positively impact the lives of countless animals.

From Firstgiving:

In Memory of Meredith Emerson

Meredith had a great love for animals. She adopted her beloved Ella, who is now 1 year old, as a puppy from a rescue organization. Everyone has fallen in love with Ella, and she will go home with Meredith's family to live.

Because of Meredith's deep connection to animals, her family suggests that those wanting to make a donation in her memory give to Longmont Humane Society through this page.

Thank you so much for remembering Meredith this way.
