    Thank you, Deseret News, for calling these moments to our attention again. There were some I missed noticing at the time I was watching, and I don't twitter, so I appreciate this article.

    You forgot the funny story told by "The Giff". That one had me rolling. (Just kidding.)

    If only we had these oh so hilarious moments compiled. We could all be laughing in our seats at good, clean, and ultimately unfunny attempts at humor.

    When President Monson bent WAY down to shake hands with the young boy, did you notice (in the video) how his bodyguard very-subtly grabbed the Prophet's coat tail and "held on for dear life" (in case President Monson lost his balance and started to fall over the partition)? 8^)

    How cute was THAT??!

    If you missed that little detail, you absolutely MUST go back and watch that video again!

    I agree with all the previous comments 100%, especially with @sg, this was one of the most powerful conferences in memory.
    Also, I loved the image of Pres. Monson reaching down to shake hands and talk to the kid. Kind of makes you think if that's what the Savior does when He reaches down to us to lift us up (just a thought).

    When all is said and done, NOTHING compares to General Conference. In my opinion, this was perhaps one of the most powerful conferences in memory, including the Priesthood session. I am grateful for my membership and testimony.

    But the most tender moment was when Pres. Monson spoke of his deceased wife Frances. Touching.

    Our family loves General Conference and those who deliver the messages that will help us grow closer to our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, the Savior Jesus Christ. We can hardly wait for General Conference April 2014. In the meantime, there is much work to do...
