    We were truly blessed to have Frances Monson serve here in Ontario as the wife of the Mission President, President Monson.
    I heard her give a talk in 2004 at the Brampton, Ontario Stake Centre. What a powerful talk it was. She was a great speaker.

    My deepest condolences and prayers for President Monson and his family. No doubt he will miss Sister Monson for now. But I trust that she will be continuing to minister to him from her side of the veil.

    (As a side editing comment - the tenth paragraph should be "G. Ward Taylor", NOT "Taylor G. Ward". He is currently serving as temple president of the Logan temple.)

    In 1996 my husband, Rulan Blatter, passed away, but I can remember the story he told our family many times about his mission experience in the Eastern Canadian Mission with President and Sister Monson. Rulan had not been in the field but a few months when he came down with pneumonia and was so discouraged and contemplated going home. Sister Monson would not hear of that, so she took him into the mission home and so lovingly nursed him back to health and encouraged him to be the best missionary there. Rulan loved President and Sister Monson so much. A few days after Rulan's death, President Monson heard of one of his sheep passing away and right away called me to buoy me up and later I visited President Monson in SLC and had one of the most spiritual experiences I shall never forget.
