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.
