WEST VALLEY CITY- (ABC 4 News) Family, friends and well wishers in the community gathered in Hunters park to say good-by, and mourn the loss of Charlie and Braden Powell.
The two brothers, ages 5 and 7, were at the center of a fierce custody battle between their maternal grandparents Chuck and Judy Cox and their father Josh Powell.
The memorial service was held at Hunter park where their mother Susan Powell would take her afternoon walk with the boys and watch them play. Several of their neighbors attended and remembered seeing in the park like it was yesterday.
Now purple ribbons hang from the trees and members of the community want to create a memorial in the park for Powell and her kids.
