My great aunt – Beatrice Lucy Parker – a beautiful woman, who had been such a wonderful human being her whole life, died a terrible death at the hands of Jim Jones and others. His name mentioned on the memorial, will never diminish the lives and memories of those lost. I feel this memorial should stand as a reminder, that no man can act as GOD, and as a place for the victims’ families to grieve. We need this memorial – it is the right thing to do. We will never forget the victims of this terrible tragedy, and we need to be reminded of this.
