Over the last few weeks I've caught myself using Erica's death as a measurement of time. Everything either falls into two categories: before Erica's death, or after Erica's death. Before she passed away I would refer to time by either the week, month, or year. Now, her death has become another point at which I gauge the measurement of time. Within our family Erica's death had a huge impact on many of us and that impact will forever be a measurement of time.
