"Me and the family are still feeling very hurt," said Eddie Gonzales, her father.
This time of the year is especially is hard because it marks the anniversary of his daughter's death and the holidays. Meagan used to decorate the house for Christmas along with her father.

“She liked poinsettias that’s why I buy them all of the time,” said Gonzales.
