“Alfred and his wife, Elsie, their daughter Beatrice, and grandchildren Danny Berry (2/24) and Rory Madden are all in Who Died. Both Alfred's grandchildren went in July 1977; his daughter Beatrice in early August, and his wife, Elsie a week later. Alfred was the last to arrive. In Jonestown, Alfred worked in the gas engines maintenance shop. Alfred was a great father and his family was close, loving and deeply respected. We were lucky to have them with us while we did. RIP, Brother Bell, and all the beautiful ones in your family. You are so missed. ” - Kathryn Barbour
