SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Family and friends are uniting to cope with the loss of a young woman whose life was tragically taken. 

Investigators said that on Sunday 25-year-old Shana Crozier was sitting on a platform on the bow of a medium-sized johnboat when she stood up as the boat approached the first of two train trestles that cross the river. 

"It was complete and utter shock. I couldn't believe it," said Abigail Camp. 

Camp is still trying to understand why her sister's life was taken so soon. 

"She was sitting in the front seat of the boat and they told her to get down," said Camp. "They yelled her name and she turned around and said what and it hit her in the back of the head."

Camp said that for the most part they are holding it together. "I think my mom is doing the worst, but we are doing OK," she said. 

For Camp, remembering what made people love Crozier helps her cope. 

"She was such a free spirit and she would do anything," she said. "She was down to do anything. She was always so much fun to be around and always happy." 

As the family prepares to say their finally goodbyes, they are comforted knowing Crozier made such an impact not only on her family but everyone she knew. 

"We always joke about how many Facebook friends she had," said Camp. "There is no way you have that many people. In reality, she really did. After this happened, we realize how many people really cared about her."

For many, it was Crozier's smile and charismatic personality that they will remember most. So rather than letting the tears overwhelm them, they are smiling and remembering the good times. 

Donation to the family can be made at any Sun Trust or Wells Fargo Bank under the Crozier Memorial Fund. There is a Paypal account under this email address: Chriswhs99@AOL.COM.  

A viewing will be held Wednesday night from 6-8 p.m. at the Gamble funeral home. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday.
