Some of pyrotechnician Meredith Smith's cremains were launched skyward last night.
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, set for Thursday night.
"I can't think of a better way," said family friend Kevin Moss.
He also will be memorialized through hundreds of T-shirts referring to the tribute as "the last shot." [Link]
