ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, James Meredith, 20 years old, born on January 19, 2000, and passed away on May 1, 2020. We will remember him forever.

James was a very unique person, always thriving to find his place in this world. His resilience was remarkable. James loved his family and he was loved back unconditionally. He cared deeply for his friends and was extremely loyal. 

Sadly we lost James far too soon, denying us of all the promise that lay ahead.

We hope this site in James memory will be a place for all those who were touched by him to gather and share your stories, memories or feelings about this amazing young man.

I have many memories of you in Ottawa, and a few from the Yukon when you were very young. But I never got the chance to really know the man you grew into, and I wish I had.

I'll pass the stories I have of you to friends and family to ensure your memory lives on.

I love and miss you James.

We miss James and still feel the grief of his passing, along with his family and many friends. We wish we would have had more time to know him as an adult but sadly this won't happen. James may be gone but his memory won't be forgotten.

Hi James
Tante Lynie here!  I miss you ! We all miss you. You left us too soon and it’s been difficult. I think of you every day.  I have the best memories of you and often still have you frozen in my mind as that cute little 4 year old during our trip to Whitehorse!  I’ll add some photos of you from that trip where you were my perfect little photographer!  I believe you are with us keeping us safe ! Rest In Peace my sweet nephew.

Dear James,

Or should I say my best friend. The memories you and I created will forever be in my mind and I’m so grateful to have been able to share those times with you. You are the only person I will ever talk to when I am sad or just need someone. The nights we spent together exploring the city , biking around and laughing will forever be in my mind and I’ll never look at the city in the same way as we did. Thankyou so much for being my only friend when we went to Glebe together and never losing contact when you were busy working hard in BC. I wish I could FaceTime you right now and continue planning that trip to come see you, or even go back a few more years and have a Grilled Cheese and red Powerade from your place at lunch. You always had a way of really treating the people you cared about good and making sure we always were protected. Every day I feel you here with me still and I know that your watching over me making sure I’m on the right path. You have had a huge impact on everyone’s life you have ever been in and I really just have to say how lucky I am to have been part of that. To my mentor, my coach, my bestfriend and my guardian angel. I love you so much my man, one day we will meet again.
Till then you will be forever in my thoughts.

I will never forget that affectious smile and giggle he had when we first met. I think it was ordering a beer, or perhaps we teased him with a sip, either way, he had a memorable way about him.

There was an innocence to how he showed up in conversation, one that left any one engaging with a smile and genuine warmth. Humans like James are rare, they carry a light that brightens any space.

He left us too soon, however he will never be forgotten <3 We love you James!

James was one of the first people I met in Canada, we met through his family and instantly had some shared interests and bonded over nights with the family drinking and laughing.

His smile and thirst for life are hard to forget and the people he has left behind will remember him forever. His loss has, and will continue to affect generations of his family and friends and this speaks to how loved he was. Like all of us, he had his challenges and difficult moments in the time I knew him but these are overwhelmed by his loving and positive moments. He highly valued family time and this was where I saw him shine. 

Hope you're watching over everyone still James. I know how sorely missed you are.

Love

James was a wonderful son. It was my ultimate privilege in life to be his father.  James was incredibly loving to his family and friends. He had boundless energy and a love for life. Even during times of personal struggle, James’ love of life would shine through his resilience.

I miss my beautiful prince James every day and would do anything, if I could, to bring him back into my life. James was an amazing son, brother, friend and uncle to his precious niece Orlaith. 

I hope that the memory of this beautiful young man will be remembered for all the love, generosity and loyalty he brought to all those he cared for.

I miss you everyday my son. I love you.

Richard
