When Lakewood, Colo. star Mackenzie Forrest died tragically in a one-car accident returning from the state championships in Boulder, she left behind an enormous network of friends, family and supporters. They haven’t forgotten her for a moment in the days since, and aren’t likely to anytime soon.
“She showed her happiness,” her mother, Denise, said. “She was very passionate. She showed it deeply. But she also felt things deeply.”
Mackenzie was passionate about her basketball shoes, loud socks, Steph Curry, Harry Potter, her coach, her friends, her faith and her family.
