These were the words of a son who just lost his mother - and he was at a loss for how to say how he felt...
Adam Meredith continued... "... I don't know." As he struggled to try to explain the last days of his mom's life, her losing her battle to cancer in such a very short time from knowing to dying, he continued, "She [Sanderbeck] took something from me... and out of my karma and my soul, I wanted to do something for my momma, so I let her say goodbye to her - I feel I did the right thing for my mom and at the end of the day, it is all about my mom and not me..."
After a pause, Adam continued, "This is about proving this woman is a bad woman and it's time for justice to prevail."
This author came to this story during the diaries I've been writing about Piper, the Champion Sheltie being held hostage by Penny Sanderbeck/Central Ohio Sheltie Rescue.
From the first diary about Ch. Legacies Pipe Dream, Piper, owned by Veronica Covatch, this story has taken such sad and disturbing twists with the story of Piper and the Meredith family merging into much bigger ones yet to be resolved for either family. Covatch and Piper are currently winding through Civil Court while the Merediths have yet to have their case brought before the Court, be it civil or criminal. What is strange is how the players in these two very different situations overlap and intertwine in a manner that causes so much grief.
On July 12, via private message, Arron Meredith reached out on Dailykos after this diary appeared on July 11, piper still needs your Help - and so do ALL dogs who fall into the abyss
During the following weeks, I had the opportunity to interview both Arron and Adam to learn more about Sanderbeck, the Meredith's tragedy, as well as finding some of the missing pieces in the Piper story.
What happened to bring so much pain and sorrow into the sadness already born of losing their mother. How did the little dog Piper become entangled into the lives of the extended family of Cheryl Meredith. Who could be so callous to cause such hurt to both the Merediths and to Veronica Covatch and all those who are following these disfunctional situations. And how does this interweave with the lost Champion Sheltie called Piper who is still missing after more than four months!
The Meredith's story is of two young men who lost their mother far too soon while someone was there reaching into darkness to steal and commit acts that caused unbearable pain and anguish during that time of great loss. That same person who so cruelly abused the trust of a dying woman and her family also ensared Veronica Covatch and her dog, Piper, into the same web of deceit. This is a story that connects through twists and turns a family's loss of a loved parent to one lost sheltie whose mom is desperately trying to bring her dog home. This, however, is not JUST the actions of one person, for the same names keep appearing across the police reports and documentation of BOTH stories - showing a much wider conspiracy that continues to bring grief and suffering without reason - it is here, the question remains: why?
Please come beneath the fold - and share the sorrow and sadness - for this can and does happen more often than we want to believe. This is one snapshot in time where lives cross and stories mingle to show that evil spreads - and envelopes all who are pulled into the vortex.
