SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A family in the community is grieving the loss of two family members due to the recent tornado.

As a result of the tornado’s damage, many people in Sullivan County lost their homes, farms, and lives.

A release from the Graham family provided details on their loss and echoed the struggles many others in the area have experienced due to the tornado. 

Susan (Graham) Horton, 61, and Thomas Horton, 38, were named as the individuals who lost their lives.

The full release states:

“Like many Hoosier families, our family is working to process the devastating tornadoes that caused so much damage to communities across Indiana on March 31.

We are grieving the loss of two beloved family members – Susan (Graham) Horton, and her son Thomas Horton. And we had a total of five homes completely destroyed on our family’s property. Homes that can no longer be lived in and land that can no longer be farmed.

First and foremost, we would like to say thank you for the support we have received from family, friends, first responders, and the greater Hoosier family. 

We have a long tradition in our state of Hoosier hospitality. As we and many others in Sullivan and communities across Indiana start to clean up and rebuild, we ask for continued prayers and support for everyone affected by the tragedy.”

Along with Susan and Thomas Graham, Shane Goodman, 47, was also killed in the Sullivan County tornado.
