Letter from Vernon Gosney

Dear Mr. Haulman,

I appreciate the hospitality of Evergreen Cemetery for the past 32 years. I am a Jonestown survivor and was with Congressman Ryan when he was killed. I nearly lost my life there, was shot three times. I lost my 4 year old son, Mark Gosney in Jonestown who was murdered by Jim Jones.  The plaque by the survivors recently will be the only marker I have for my son. I can not express how much the means to me. I was one of the contributors to the plaque. I appreciate you and ask for your continued support so that I may have a place to come and honor my son and all the loves one I lost.  I apologize for the trouble Ms. Norwood has caused you folks. You are good people.  

Vernon Gosney
