“Mabel must have been 8 years old when I first saw her, and I can hardly imagine her as a 16-year-old. She was a student in the Jonestown School and had no other responsibilities. Mabel was a treasure, like all the Cordell children, happy, healthy and so cooperative, they modeled the principles of brotherhood and were uniquely special in that and a joy to behold and be with. Unforgettable Mabel, you are loved and remembered. ” - Kathryn Barbour
