A drive-past commemoration for the three young brothers who died in a Brampton fire is planned for Sunday.
The boys, identified as Coen, 15, Riley, 12, and nine-year-old Alex Bagan Overholt, died in a hospital after being pulled from the blaze inside their home in the Torbram Rd.-Clark Boulevard area on Jan. 20.
“There are no words to accurately express and convey the heartache we are feeling with the loss of Coen, Riley and Alex,” the family said in a news release.
“The boys were incredibly helpful, kind and good humans, but more than anything, they were, and continue to be, deeply loved by so many. We know their personalities will brighten the afterlife and continue to shine within all our hearts.”
The family went on to thank the community of Brampton for the “kind words, generosity, prayers and understanding.”
