  2. Dear Laura,
    I am so sorry to hear that your Mom lost her battle. My father also died on the morning of January 26th, 1997 – 9 years ago.

    We started talking about getting married within our first year of dating. Fast, right? Way too fast for me.

  9. Time is slippery: it’s difficult to grasp and impossible to hold still…and I just can’t believe that six years have passed since that sad day. I can close my eyes and remember the feel of her soft skin and the strength of her hug. I remember th
