Herta Ruth Williams took a round trip Greyhound bus ride to Salt Lake City for the October general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and a most unusual event occurred on her return trip to her home in Berthoud, Colo.
A stop was made in Rawlins, Wyo., and she was able to introduce herself to two young LDS missionaries who were seated in the rear of the bus.
As the driver started to resume the trip, an elderly male passenger two seats in front of her apparently experienced an epileptic attack. He started to flail his arms and convulsions shook his body. The driver immediately stopped the vehicle and issued a call for local paramedics.
The two missionaries rushed to the man and extended a blessing. As soon as the spokesman removed his hands, the gentleman opened his eyes and his turbulent body relaxed. He was then taken to a local hospital for observation.
The spirit was so strong, tears came to her eyes, and as the two elders returned to their seats, she clasped their hands.
In all of the excitement, she failed to notice their names.
Robert J. Williams' wife is the late Herta Ruth Williams, and he lives in Richfield, Utah.
