Dedicated in memory of three young boys whose lives were taken far too soon is a breathtaking mural painted in their honor.

Located on the wall behind Uni-Mart in the Punxy Plaza, the mural was painted by artist Cora Smith, of Mahaffey, in memory of the late Joel Riggleman, Sean McConnaughey and Dylan Behrendt, three friends who lost their lives in a car accident in 2011.

Pictured (from left) are Joel’s family: Mercy Smith and Drinda and Brian Smith.
