“I was very young. She was married to my cousin. She was very nice to me. I remember seeing her and the baby's picture laying face down in a magazine. ” - Anonymous

“According to Odell Rhodes, Ruletta was the first person to step forward and take the poison. She was carrying her baby in her arms. Did she think it was just another drill? Did she know that her baby was to be the first of hundreds of babies and children murdered that terrible day? My heart cries for these infants, who in the arms they should have been safest and happiest had to be used for the goals of an evil creature. ” - Anonymous
