    President Monson lived a beautiful, wonderful life of love and service.

    How wonderful to have this perspective and yet how sad everyone still says "stories" rather than "accounts" or "true accounts." I remember as a child that if you said someone was "telling stories" it meant they were lying. I think "account" is a much better word and have for years. In pioneer history, we have "accounts" of what happened to our forefathers that increase our faith, just like in the accounts of President Monson's life we have accounts of how we can each be better at helping others in need. "To the Rescue" indeed.

    He will be missed. If everyone that has a personal story involving President Monson was able to publish it, the book would be huge.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful things about a great man. If only we could all do what he said we should do.

    What a great example of love, charity and service. A true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Thanks for your influence in our lives, and your dedication and spreading of truth across the world. Your humanitarian efforts will make us try harder to seek out the "one" and minister to others. We miss you more than you will know, but praise your life and legacy in service of the Master.

    I wonder if, in his late life, he saw the profound change in the commentary and articles now published in the Deseret News in the last few years. It used to be a very conservative newspaper for the Church.

    Thank you President Monson and all your "personal accounts." What a treasure!
