“This is my Mother. She had four children, Jeanette, Philip, Ruth and Carol Ann who died with her in Guyana. Ruth died last month due to breast cancer, she will be missed. Our lives have been tarnished by this tragedy and the grief that I carry in my soul for all who survived Peoples Temple and those that perished, especially the children who did not have the ability to make a choice. ” - Jeanette Kerns
