Like last year, Susan’s family and friends are once again holding a balloon release event in both Utah and Washington to remember Susan’s 30th birthday.

In Utah:

Saturday, October 15, 11am at West View Park.  West View Park is located on the north-west corner of 4100 South and 6000 West in West Valley City, Utah.  West Valley’s Mayor Mike Winder will be attending and speaking at the event. 

In Washington:

Sunday, October 16, 4pm at Bradley Lake ParkBradley Lake Park is located at 531 31st Ave SE in Puyallup, Washington.

We would love for the public in both locations to attend and celebrate Susan’s birthday with us. We hope to see you there!

If you would like to post a comment here of support for Susan, we will be attaching messages to the balloons before releasing them.  You can also leave a comment at the Facebook page “Friends and Family of Susan Cox Powell” or group “Friends and Family of Susan Powell.”

On Wednesday, September 28, a judge granted temporary custody of Susan’s two young boys to Chuck and Judy Cox.  They will remain with the Coxes until the next hearing, set for November 15.

Josh Powell was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation along with a parental assessment.  He is allowed a 3-hour visit with the boys each Sunday, supervised by the state.
