“I attended Bethel Lutheran School in Clayton, Missouri with Barbara Faye Hoyer. I knew her when she was in grades 5 through 8 while I was in grades 1 through 4. Her mother was my kindergarden teacher and one of my favorite teachers ever. My parents, were friends with hers. I remember Barbara as being a happy, positive, kind hearted, intelligent and beautiful person. Being about 5 years younger, I looked up to her as being someone I could trust. She looked a lot like her mother - same eyes. It's difficult for me to understand why she got involved with Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple. I was deeply saddened to learn of this tragedy and her death. I hope to see her in heaven. ” - Anonymous

“Barbara was in my graduation class at college. I served meals at her dorm as a work grant recipient. She always said "Hi!" Her dad was a professor at my seminary. I wish all who grieve her loss a measure of peace in the midst of an uncomprehendable tragedy. ” - Rev. Allen W. Belanger
