“That was an innocent life and did have a chance to live it. My heartbreak for that little baby that would have been 30 years and maybe kids and a career and all the other finer things in life. ” - Marie

“Both Kenya's mother, Darlene Newman, and grandmother, Nena Downs, were teachers in the school at Jonestown, and her aunt Anita Devers was a nursing supervisor. Dear little Kenya, Rest In Peace, together with your loved ones. You will never be forgotten by all in SF who knew you up to the age of six months, when you left with your dear mom for Jonestown.” - Kathryn Barbour
