“Taken too soon” was the phrase repeated numerous times during a vigil Wednesday night to honor Gabbiee Swainson’s life. Gabbiee, a student at Ridgeview High School in Richland County, was taken from her northeast Columbia home one year ago. Law enforcement recovered Gabbiee’s body Aug. 8 from a 5-foot grave just outside of Elgin.
