Thank you Susan. I loved (and now love) Joseph Fielding Smith. As a teen, I
was privileged to attend a youth fireside where President Smith and Jesse spoke.
He sang with Jesse after playfully mentioning that the number was a "do
it" rather than a duet. His greatest desire was to remain true and
faithful to his covenants. I attended his funeral at age 16 and felt a
remarkable spirit in connection with his passing tht confirmed his divine
calling, both in his live and in eternity. His life's work continues to be
memorialized through his sound doctrine and his prolific scholarship. He was
and continues to be a mentor to members who never had a chance to meet him in
Now I more fully understand the love of the Prophets that Susan has. She is
truly a gift of spiritual light in the midst of so many other authors, and it is
lovely to read of her own experiences and tender times with prophets now and who
lived on before. What a treasured gift she is sharing to us all.
