“Jimmy Cordell was the youngest of Harold and Loretta Cordell's five children. He lived in Redwood Valley and arrived in Guyana on 8/4/1977. He lived in Cottage 01 in Jonestown. Jimmy-Jo, as he was called, was a happy and cooperative child, a rising star; it's hard to imagine him being 14! RIP, my angelic little brother. ” - Kathryn Barbour
