A local mom is working on a special tribute to honor her three children killed in a plane crash exactly seven years ago.

Karen Perry is collaborating with an artist building a bronze sculpture to honor Perry’s kids, 9-year-old Morgan, 8-year-old Logan and 6-year-old Luke.

The children were seated in the back of a private plane with their father when it crashed into Superstition Mountain on Nov. 23, 2011.

“I look at their pictures a lot and I do remember them and the funny stories,” says Perry. “The fond things definitely keep me going.”

The sculpture, under construction in California, will be called the “Ribbon of Life.”

It’s expected to be completed in February and placed at the Superstition Mountain Museum.

“It’s actually 75 feet of bronze and there will be a couple of photographs of my children engraved into the bronze,” says Perry. “The purpose is also to honor everyone who’s lost their lives at the mountain.”

Perry says she’s moved by messages of support from the community.

“They continue to reach out and offer support and love, and it’s been great,” says Perry. “It’s touched me a lot to see that in people.”

Perry is fundraising to cover the costs of the Ribbon of Life project. Anyone wishing to donate can click here.
