“Grandma I never got to know you as I should have. All I remember is sitting in church with the family at Peoples Temple and then your funeral. It took so long for me to trust in people and God after this. But know I know he is a loving God and that you are there in his arms. I still have my papers and passport and thank God every day that he put it in my mother¬ís heart to tell my father Louis Jordan, that he was not taking his son there, so we both survived. It is terrible that all that is left of you is this picture and dust. I have learned to love and trust again. Grandma we miss you.” - HARLON JORDAN
