Williston Community Holds Vigil In Memory of Savanna Greywind

After news of Savanna Greywind’s death– people from all across the state have been gathering to honor her memory.
 
“She was really sweet. Always open-hearted,” says Tessa Taylor, who worked with Greywind and co-organized a vigil in her memory. 
 
The Williston community gathered in remembrance of Greywind. A woman many had never met, but whose loss was still deeply felt. 
 
“I’m just praying for her family. In this difficult time. I just feel bad for them all. It should have never happened,” says Tammi Argo, who helped Taylor organized the vigil. 
 
Out of the darkness of a tragedy, community members came together-
Lighting candles .
Saying a prayer.
Singing songs in Greywind’s memory. 
And wearing red as a symbol of love. 
 
“Up to this day, I’m always wondering and I still can’t understand. We all go sometimes. But why this early? And why do things this way?,”says Adrian Ireland, who sang a ceremonial song for Greywind at the vigil. 
 
The flames at the vigil burned bright-
almost as bright as the smile of a woman whose life was extinguished too soon.
 
Those who attended the vigil signed a card which they plan to send, along with donations, to the Greywind family.
