” - Anonymous“All I can say is WOW. I just found out today that this may be my father after doing some extensive research since I was adopted and didn't know either of my biological parents name. To find out his name, then to find out he died at Jonestown and now that I may have two other siblings that didn't know him either is quite a lot in one day. I pray he was at peace when he passed.” - Coylette James
