Heavens' Gate Cult -A Sisters Story

March 26, 2012 will mark the 15th anniversary of the mass suicide of the 39 Heaven's Gate members

Many people don't recall this tragedy; some don't realize that this was the largest mass suicide to ever occur on US soil

Others of us, who lost family members or friends-can't forget.

Suicide doesn't end with the end of a life. The pain and emptiness remains with those left to mourn.

My brother Jimmy, was a former member of the Heaven's Gate cult, and followed them in suicide.

I miss him every day.


  1. Thank you for this post. I know what it is like to write through the pain and your work often reminds me of how important it is to do so. We write through the pain to remember and honor those who are no longer with us and to help us heal.

    Thanks again!

  2. Just like your book of poetry, this is a very transparent piece of writing/sharing. I will become a better writer when I can share as freely as you. My continued condolences.
