PUYALLUP, Wash. - Chuck Cox will never forget what happened to his grandsons. He hopes a new memorial will ensure the community doesn't either.

Cox's grandsons, Charlie and Braden Powell, were killed by their father, Josh Powell in February.
Powell also killed himself.

Cox's daughter, Susan Powell, has not been seen since December 6, 2009.

This Dec. 6, Cox will be honoring his loved ones at a new memorial in Puyallup's Woodbine Cemetery.

But Cox said it won't only be for his grandsons.

"You feel guilty Charlie and Braden have gotten so much attention, because there's other people that have lost children," he said.

The names of other missing persons and children who have died under tragic circumstances will be added to the site.

The memorial will be dedicated Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Puyallup's Woodbine Cemetery.

Donations to Crime Stoppers paid for the memorial.
