To the Meed family: I am a nurse at Piqua Manor, & cared for Mr. Meed 2 or 3 times during his stay there. Although he was ill, he always had a smile & cheerful words when I walked into his room. A very sweet man, he will be missed. I am glad I got the chance to know him. Please accept my sincere condolences.
