On July 25, 2021, I was awaiting my family’s return when I received a phone call about an accident that had occurred near Fillmore Utah. My wife Kortni, son Riggins, daughter Franki, brother Race Sawyer, and nephew Rider were all killed instantly.  My son Blue had survived the crash and was being life flighted for emergency care. There are no words to describe the pain and grief of a loss of this magnitude.  Likewise, no words or photos can give justice to the amazing people we lost that day. To share their life moments is to honor them.  They will always be loved and remembered. - Mason Sawyer
