Condolences to all the Meiers. Dr. Meier was one of the really fun dads growing up. It didn't matter how late we raided the Meier fridge he was always happy to see our roving gang of Stanford brats and have a great debate on anything. Such a sweet and positive person. It was a privilege to have known and loved him.
