As per Meri, she’d been made aware of her brother’s decision to discontinue chemotherapy only recently. She began her caption along these lines by saying, “About 5 weeks ago I got a text from my brother saying he had made the decision to not continue chemo treatment,” said the reality star and claimed that it was “due to the rapid progression of his cancer and deterioration of his body.” Meri then unveiled that 'Yesterday, Oct 5, 2023,' is when she lost her beloved sibling, and reportedly, Barber was just two months away from celebrating his 55th birthday.
Although this was devastating news, Meri elaborated on some bitter-sweet memories of him and fondly looked back on all the wonderful times they’d had. She also noted that although there were “so many good memories with him over the years,” there were also some “not-so-good memories” with him, and she said so in good humor. The reality star also delved into her reaction upon learning about his condition for the first time. She recalled how news of his cancer being terminal hit her 'like a ton of bricks.'

As the emotionally moving post went on, Meri attempted to convey her feelings of grief now that she was the 'only one from the original four.' She claimed that she is still processing the situation and is trying to comprehend why Adam’s demise is affecting her the way it is. “Maybe I’ll figure it out someday, maybe I won’t. Only time will tell,” she said while pondering on this matter. She also shared a joke made between her and Adam in the past about their debate over whether or not 'irregardless' was a word or not.
In conclusion, she highlighted that her relationship with him and the memories they’ve made are ones she’d forever cherish. In addition, she claimed that “for now I remember him with honor, kindness & love.” She ended the caption with the aforementioned joke, “PS Adam, I have the last word. And that is REGARDLESS.”
