"Her death was unreal in many ways," said Arline Kercher, Meredith's mother, "and still is. I still look for her."

During her final statement to the court in pleading for her freedom today, Knox said Kercher was her friend, someone she "shared my life with. She cared for me."

Kercher's mother downplayed their friendship.

"I don't think they were that close. ... Amanda only got there in the beginning of October, and Meredith was murdered on the first of November," Arline Kercher said. "I think they were friendly but not that close."

The family shared memories of Meredith Kercher. "Mez was just a lovely girl. ... She was always there for everyone," Stephanie Kercher said.

Arline Kercher cited a line in a story she read about the murder, saying, "I think it happened to Meredith because she was all that they weren't."
