“Here is a lady who lived through the depression, lived through so much...only to die at the hands of a mad man. So many on this site writes "Remember the children" which we should. But what about the seniors? What about Christine E.M. Bates, her life should be remembered, her full life who was so unfairly ended. A beautiful life should have a beautiful ending...I mourn her and her life and pray that her life before Jonestown overshadows her end at Jonestown. ” - Julie
