The Interstate Chapter 12

It was a snowy day on Christmas Eve. I remember when McKenna told me that she wanted her wedding to be on a snowy day, on Christmas. This was no wedding though, it was her funeral.

Her pink highlights were not in her hair anymore, but her hair was just brown, with curls from Heaven.
