“You were my very special aunt. I felt so close to you, you were like a big sister to me. I have so many WHY questions, that will never be answered. Things could have been so different in our family if only you had never left.You and my cousins are all missed and loved by all of us.I pray everyday that somehow the records are wrong, and maybe you are still out there. Your picture is on my dresser,still. Love you, Donna Cordell ” - Donna Cordell

“I grew up with Carol, we were best friends for a number of years, all through school and high school, up till we married and went separate ways. We did write, the last letter I got was the one telling me they were moving to Jonestown. I miss her and wish I could talk and laugh with her one more time. ” - Judy Doss Mccreary
