“This little guy is sitting in heaven protected by God for eternity. ” - Greg Bower

“I met your would be nephew via internet and I may not know him personally but I know that he loved you. Even if he never met you, he loves you. You did not deserve such an end like this by the hands of a scared, confused, manic depressive who was misguided. I know that wherever you are at, you are away from him and you're with people who love you, Rest In Peace. ” - Anonymous

“Obviously I didn't know this child, but I submit my thoughts on behalf of all the children whose lives were cut short that horrible day so many years ago. I am still furious at Jim Jones. I couldn't even finish listening to the so-called death tape because of the lethal nonsense he was spewing out to his followers. It's hard to imagine the level of brainwashing that went on to convince so many people that dying was their only option. RIP Little Ones. ” - Anonymous
