Hundreds Powell, Chuck Cox reaches out to touch the casket bearing his grandsons, Charlie and Braden Powell, as he walks with wife Judy during a funeral service today in Tacoma, Wash.
Family, teachers, friends and hundreds with no connection to Charlie and Braden Powell remembered the slain boys today in Tacoma, Wash., as brimming with life and full of promise.
An estimated 2,000 people attended a public memorial service at Life Center Church a week after the boys’ father, Josh Powell, murdered them by chopping them across the back of the head and neck before setting the house on fire. All three died of smoke inhalation.
At the memorial service, Rev. Dean Curry told the congregation to think of the boys as “works of art,” not the grim circumstances of their death, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
“How we got here is a story well known,” Curry said. “But what we do here and the spirit we do have here is up to us.”
