“This was my great grandmother that I never met. I still dont understand why but I am okay with what has happened to her. It was her path, and we all must take a path. One thing that I am happy about is the fact that my great grand mother believed in something, wheter it was right or wrong, and that makes me proud. ” - Kamil

“I met my Great Grand Mother two times in San Francisco. She was remarkable and full of hugs. Today someone said to me that we should drink the kool-aid and all be on the same team. I had to decline and explain why. ” - Elijah Hall

“I never met my great-grand aunt, but I always heard amazing stories about her. She will always be missed. ” - Anonymous
