The family of Channon Christian gathered in Highland West Memorial Park Tuesday afternoon to remember the young woman.

Channon Christian and Chris Newsom were murdered seven years ago on January 7, 2007. The case got national attention for the violent nature of their deaths.

But Tuesday was a day to remember Channon Christian's life. Her parents and other family and friends gathered and released balloons to honor her.

Channon's mom says not a day goes by she doesn't think of her daughter.

"I really-- it seems hard to believe it's already been seven years and then again it doesn't because I miss her every second of every day, and these people that came out today-- our friends and family that came out today, it's a testament to Channon," said Deena Christian.

The Newsom family held a memorial to remember their son Chris this past Sunday.
