Thank you for this inspiring story. You have made a wonderful like out of a very hard life. This is something to remember. I love how much you do for others with so much love and caring.


Enjoyable article ! Thanks !


These human-interest stories are my favorites. Thank you! I really enjoyed reading about Mr. Fitzgerald's journey, and his example of humility and service.

Salt Lake City, UT

Great story and a very inspirational man and family. It's really marvelous to have such examples for all of us to learn from. Thank you!

Great job, Rachel! A truly inspiring story of high self-expectations.

Brother Fitzgerald, it's a great pleasure to meet you!

Here is how we celebrate his service, love for his family and what he has achieved...Go to his restaurant and sustain him. It's how we sustain our leaders and those with callings. We go and sustain them. I will go as soon as I get off my senior mission in 6 months.

Wonderful story. Just experience the blessings of adoption. I can hardly wait to visit the thyme and seasons, and experience the culinary experience, and sustain him in his work. Having lived also in the orient, I welcome this blending of culture and the concept that we can be at home all over the world..

I bet he could do a awesome Fireside! Would Hai travel to Atlanta to do a Fireside? The Branch here could really benefit from it.

This story made me hungry. If I was even half as close to Bountiful I would consider going to Brother Fitzgerald's restaurant. Immigrant enterpreneuers like Fitzgerald are a key part of our national economy.

Does it really count as a pioneer trek if you have gourmet food? I thought you were trying to live like the pioneers. Somehow I do not think anyone in the Willie Handcart Company was munching on a baguette as they crossed the sweatwater. I guess there are limits to historical recreationism, but gourmet food seems a bit much.
