Editor’s note: This series introduces one minister from every church and faith-based organization in the community each month. More than 70 years ago, a little boy drowned in the Chattahoochee River on an early Sunday morning. The tragedy rocked Northeast Georgia, and Gainesville resident Sally Crumbley, who lived in the Riverbend community, got to praying and thinking.
