“Miller Bridgewater had a beautiful, deep voice and used to sing "He Touched Me" and other solos in services. In Jonestown, he worked in the central kitchen as a butcher, and was also a vegetable worker there. Edith Roller called Miller "Brother Bridgewater" once they were in Jonestown. ” - Kathryn Barbour
