    My heart breaks and aches with your hearts, dear Taufa family! May the Lord bless you all with His Peace, Comfort, Hope, and Love. We weep on this side while Elder Taufa is encircled with great rejoicing and an amazing celebration. Elder Maxwell said,
    "Finally, remember; When we return to our real home, it will be with the "mutal approbation" of those who reign in the "royal courts on high." There we will find beauty such as mortal eye hath not seen; we will hear sounds of surpassing music which moral ear hath not heard. Could such a regal homecoming be possible without the anticipatory arrangements of a Heavenly Mother?" (Woman of God by Elder Neal A Maxwell from the book titled Woman,pg. 98)There will be many who are there in this heavenly celebration. May you be blessed for the ultimate sacrifice made by your faithful son.

    Lord Bless the Taufa Family at this time of sadness.

    One of the beauties of the Restored Gospel is the assurance that in the next life
    Families will be Together Again. That generally seems like a long time away, however.

    Elder Taufa lived a Good Life and died in the service of the Lord while trying to help

    Again, Lord Bless the Family....

    While the Elder's passing is sad for his family, it is also a comforting occasion according to the gospel he was teaching. He died in service to his fellow man and preaching the gospel. A temporary loss - yes. But a comforting one in that you know where the next stage of his journey is taking him. The loss of a wayword child would be much worse. I hope his family is consoled in this temporary loss.
