“Another Virginian who died so far from home. Hopefully her story will be a warning for all those who are enticed by false prophets such as Jim Jones and Co. May she rest easy. ” - Patrick

“I remember seeing you in the documentary "The life and death of Peoples Temple". You were a longtime member who trusted Jim Jones and traveled the world with him. I think your death saddens me as much as the young children because you almost lived 100 yrs but died so senselessly. So many healthy seniors full of life who might have lived even longer, yet to have it end so abruptly and tragically. ” - Anonymous
