Family, teachers, community in Tacoma, Wash., remember Powell boys killed in fire set by dad
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) ' The family of missing Utah woman Susan Powell is holding a public funeral for her two sons, nearly a week after their father killed them in a gas-fueled blaze.
Hundreds of people are attending the Saturday service at Life Center Church in Tacoma, Wash. Many are wearing purple and blue ribbons in memory of 7-year-old Charlie and 5-year-old Braden.
Family members and the boys' teachers are scheduled to speak.
The boys' remains are in one coffin adorned with flowers.
They were killed in a fire set by their father, Josh Powell, when they went to visit him Sunday at his home in Graham.
Powell also died. He was a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife two years ago.
A private family interment will take place Monday.
