Remembrances
 
“I remember little about this beautiful member of the Los Angeles Temple, beyond recognizing her face and knowing she worked as a security guard. She had no relatives in Jonestown, and was one of our singles. There she worked in the nursery as a supervisor. She was also a needs worker, and worked part-time at the Sew/Decorate/Mend workshop. Still, she is unforgettable to me. RIP, Loretta. ” - Kathryn Barbour
