It’s been almost two years since I saw Skye Williams. Two years. Now, standing in my dorm room for the last time, I look around. The walls are bare, with plenty of nail holes to mark how many pictures I’ve tacked up—more than a few of growing up with her. Just because she’s never been to the University of North Carolina doesn’t mean she’s never been here…if you know what I mean. There hasn’t been a day gone by I haven’t kept some part of her with me.
