Today is the 1st anniversary of my friend's death. She was shot and killed last year on her 30th birthday by her estranged husband. Her mother was a few feet away from her at the time. She left two little boys behind which her mother now has guardianship over. The trial is not even close to over, but he is pleading guilty finally, which is something everyone is grateful for. Her mother wrote a very touching blog entry on her memory blog this morning as a tribute to her.
