PHOENIX -- Karen Perry's arms are always open for hugs.
Perry lost all three of her children in a plane crash in the Superstition Mountains last year on the night before Thanksgiving.
"It's been a difficult year. This month has been a very emotional month coming up on the anniversary. It has taught me a greater appreciation for everything in my life," said Perry.
Nine-year-old Morgan, 6-year-old Luke, and 8-year-old Logan will never be forgotten at Laurens Institute for Education, or L.I.F.E., a school for mentally disabled children.
Luke and Morgan attended classes at L.I.F.E..
There is now "Perry's Corner" filled with their pictures and "Perry's Library" packed with books.
Margaret Travillion, a co-owner of L.I.F.E., said she "walks through these halls and we're able to know in a small way the kids are here with us."
The three siblings loved reading.
Luke enjoyed his picture books.
"If he were watching us right now I know he would be opening every single one of those books," said Perry.
Perry said it means a lot to her that her children's memories live on.
