Moses told KEZI Isaac was out with Wallace and one of their friends last night when the crash happened.

She said her son will be remembered as warm and loved by many.

"I don't even know the words. His smile -- it lightened up the night. He was just so outgoing and fun," said Moses

A vigil was held Sunday evening at the site of the wreck, giving friends and family the opportunity to pay their respects and share in their mourning over the young couple. 

George Wallace, MeKenna's father, says she will be missed every day.

"I'll remember everything. All the good, all the bad, all the smiles, all the tears," said Wallace.

MeKenna left behind a 6-year-old daughter and a son just under the age of 1.
