~Tawni Camille Smith~
Saturday evening one of my little cousins drowned in a terrible accident. Her name was Tawni Camille. A little sprite of a girl who was the apple of her daddy's eye.
She and her family were playing at a low water bridge in Fort Gibson. Her parents had warned the children about the dangers of the current, especially near a washed out area that created a whirlpool where the water was making its way under the concrete slab that made the low water bridge. Their attention was drawn away for a few minutes and the strong current pulled her under. They never heard a sound.
Rescuers from 2 counties came at the call for help and they searched for her over an hour.
She was 8 years old.
Please remember her family in your prayers. They do not have a church family and are having a very difficult time. They are surrounded by our HUGE family and have found comfort with each visit.
