“Your oldest son, Jim was very brave. He made it his mission after he defected to get you and his younger siblings out of Jonestown because he saw it for what it really was. Your family's story in "Raven" saddened me a great deal. You still managed to remain close knit and didn't betray (even though there were consequences) one another because the bond was so strong. Even when your son traveled to Jonestown with the Congressman and had dinner with you that night, I could still see the closeness and love in the video and pictures. It's such a tragedy that he wasn't able to get you out. But Im at least glad he survived the airstrip attack by being mindful and acute. RIP to you and your children. You will not be forgotten. ” - Anonymous

“Christine, your energy, beauty, and dignity has always stood out to me when I watch footage from Jonestown. I want you to know that I remember you. I hope that you are looking down from heaven and know what a good person you are. It is sad that you had to suffer so, but I truly hope that you are flying high with God and the angels right now. ” - Carrie
