I postponed my trip to the West Coast in order to honor Matt’s final wishes. Crystal was a big help with the funeral arrangements. She took care of the cremation and even arranged a small memorial ceremony with the few people left who still loved him.
Honestly, I think many of them only came out to make sure a convicted killer was truly dead. It sickened me every time I heard someone utter the words, good riddance.
The one person I didn’t expect—Matt and Leo’s uncle—came to the funeral home. The man was a perfect blend of his nephews—tall with a brooding appearance, dark hair, and stormy eyes. He extended his hand.
“Please forgive me. I thought I was doing the right thing. Now I see it was the worst solution for my nephews,” he admitted.
Pushing my shoulders back, I held my chin high. “Forgiveness is earned. An apology won’t bring Matt back to us.”
