    My wife and I will always be eternally grateful to President Packer for bringing to forefront the special needs of parents who have special needs children. He hit the nail on the head, during one of his conference talks, several years ago.
    We love you President Packer!
    May the Lord comfort and strengthen you.

    I have loved and admired President Packer since I was a small girl. He is a great man who loves God and serves as a wonderful example of the Truth. I pray he will heal and be allowed to continue to teach us. What an incredible man he is.

    He definitely does not look his age. I remember meeting him in Longview, Texas about 1979, and he still looks the same, only a little grayer.

    It is so difficult to find those who will actively stand against things that are wrong, or make sense of the clouded issues that rise with the adoption of advancing technology. We still need Brother Packer's reinforcing voice and no nonsense views.

    Many people don't understand why they do it but they actually set an example to us that we should work and put the shoulder on the wheel til the end. Next time I feel like staying on bed instead of going to church, I will remember President Parker.

    I am amazed how at their advanced age that they travel the globe.

    Best wishes.

    President Packer, I hope that you will recover and get feeling better. I so admire all of you brethren for your work and travels at this time of your life. Without a doubt, the Lord does bless and sustain all of you and I hope that will continue for as long as your mission continues in this life.
