    May the Lord bless and comfort his dear family and fellow missionaries and friends. What an inspiration he has been in his short life!

    The elder was serving in one of the choice cities for missionary work in South America. His dedication and that of his family is, at once, common and remarkable. The Peruvians are remarkable in their spirit and their devotion, making sacrifices seem ordinary. May the Lord bless Elder Litano's family as we contemplate his missions, the one he has finished and the one he has begun.

    Sister Cecilia Litano...“this generation is not only accelerating the work here on Earth, but also in the world of spirits.”

    Sister, as soon as I read the first several paragraphs I had the same thought as your above tribute to your beautiful brother and others that seem to be needed elsewhere.

    My prayer is that your family and other loved ones will be strengthened and comforted in the knowledge that they are indeed "chosen ones"....

    So hard to understand how you could lose a loved one serving the Lord. But that is the point,
    wherever he is, here or there, he is in the service of his God. What a comfort to have this
    understanding and promise through the covenants he has made. And the loss here can only be
    understood if we were to view the joy of those whose opportunity to be taught the gospel has
    now become possible.
    God bless this family to gain this understanding and the ability to find joy in this moment of
    life experience.

    My deepest condolences to the Litano family. May our kind and gracious Heavenly Father bless you with comfort and peace in knowing that Elder Litano lives on, and is continuing his mission in the service of our Beloved Savior on the other side of the veil while you continue your work here.

    Much love to you.

    What a sweet tribute from his sister, I have no doubt that these young missionaries that have been called home to their Father in Heaven so soon are greatly needed on the other side of the veil. Their work is going forward on a much greater pace then here on the earth. They are the choice ones and their families are so special to have such faith in a time of sorrow.

    Lord Bless Elder Litano's family at this time.

    He died while doing the Lord's Work.

    Lord Bless him in the Spirit World.

    With the Family's Faith, I'm sure they will all be Re-united
    in the Next Phase of Life....
