Letter from Richard Lawrence


I consider myself a friend of Fielding McGehee and a student of Jonestown, and I must say that I cannot imagine how anyone could act as if they own that tragic event.

I know Evergreen Cemetery is in Court over the memorial(s), and I do not think it is right for anyone or any group to block the efforts of others to honor the memory of those who died there or cause further grief for the families of the deceased and survivors.

Your courage and your support of the rights of all who care about Jonestown is welcomed, and I hope you will hold out and help move ahead the completion of a fitting memorial.


Richard Lawrence
