“Darlene was a quiet and thoughtful member of Peoples Temple. She brought her children with her to Guyana because she was sure it would be a better life for them. She was calm and nurturing to her children and the other children in Jonestown. It was wonderful spending time with her because she was so kind. In Jonestown, she was consistently thoughtful of others.” - Laura Johnston Kohl
