    I find it curious that this story doesn't mention the exact cause of this woman's death. It does mention a past history of mental illness. That may very well have played a role this time. Just because she went on and did all those great things doesn't mean she didn't still have problems that were not being effectively dealt with.

    Wow...this is a wonderfully written story! I, too, wish I had been given the chance to know Mrs. Rees, but moreover I wish that my kids had known her! We will pray for peace in your lives, but somehow, I think you will have it.

    I hope she is busy at work on the other side teaching how sweet the Peace is that the Gospel brings...she seems to have known it intimately in this life.

    May the Lord bless your family, Sister Rees!

    Their darling missionary daughter just left our stake to return home. Blessings, peace, and love to her and her family at this difficult time and as they try to move forward.

    the song about being an ole chunk of coal but going to be a diamond some day putting a smile on everybody's face comes to mind as I read the story. My condolences to the family, she'll be missed.

    Thanks very much for this inspiring story! Great reminder that none of us is perfect, yet we all have a special purpose and important tasks that we need to do on this Earth.

    What an incredible woman and huge spirit. Wish I could have known her––I'm sure I would have loved her. I'm sure she passed on to her family the resiliency and tenacity they'll need to carry on without her. Good story, Jason.
