INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - One of the fireworks bursting above Indianapolis for tonight's 4th of July fireworks will include the cremated remains of Meredith Smith. He ran the annual event for 40 years before dying earlier this year.
About a half-teaspoon of his ashes will be in a fireworks shell that will create a white burst in the sky for the finale of the show.
Kevin Moss says he can't think of a better to way to honor his friend.
There'll also be hundreds of T-shirts referring to the tribute as the "the last shot."
