Susan Cox Powell’s father, Chuck Cox, released a statement Wednesday saying that no memorial site, or art for his daughter and two grandsons was finalized.

Previously it was reported that a bronze statue of Susan and her sons would be made for a site located at Pleasant Green Cemetery in Magna.

The following statement was released from the Susan Cox Powell Foundation on Wednesday:

I would like to thank those in Utah, and Washington State who have stepped forward to volunteer to donate property, materials, time and talents to create a memorial to honor Susan Charlie and Braden Powell, we are thankful for your generosity and enthusiasm.

However, no specific site or artist have been chosen, as was reported yesterday.  In fairness to all those wishing to support a memorial Kiirsi Hellewell, one of Susan’s closest and dearest friends, is forming a committee to study all alternatives including location(s) and art.  We feel it is important to consider all options in order to respectfully honor our loved ones and make the best use of all resources.

Thank you, Chuck Cox
