'It hurts to breathe without you'
Ellie Meacock, who identifies herself as Meacock's sibling, wrote, "My baby brother, I can't believe it. Words cannot describe how much I miss you. It hurts to breathe without you. You are an extremely special soul that will live on forever. The most beautiful boy inside and out. Nobody will ever have a smile quite like yours."
Ellie continued, "I admire you in every way. The joy you brought to the people around you will never be forgotten. I am so extremely grateful for the amazing relationship we had. There is no one else I'd rather confide in. I love you forever and ever my best friend."
How is Liza Burke's condition?
Meacock died shortly after another college student was unexpectedly knocked out while traveling to Mexico for spring break. MEAWW previously reported University of Georgia student Burke suffered a brain hemorrhage while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas with her friends.
A portion of the college senior's skull was removed during emergency surgery, and she was put on life support before being flown back to the United States. She is receiving care at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and is anticipated to make a full recovery.
Burke's GoFundMe campaign was launched by family friend Jennifer Ritter to raise money for her medical care and return back home. Burke was put on a medical flight on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, and returned to the US where she was brought to Jacksonville, Florida, where her mother lives, owing to the campaign's ability to raise more than $138,000 for the cause.
