I talked with a friend last night, and she mentioned it had been 7 years since her mom died.
I remember that summer. She came up from Miami to visit, staying with us as she had since the summer after HS graduation. I remember the 4th of July - I had been in a wedding that afternoon in a backyard, one that would fall apart within a year. I also received my first marriage proposal :).
(A lot has happened since then, but I still remember that)
