Just a question. Have had a couple of non-members and a member ask what
was the green leaf curtain thing hanging down on the sides of his casket?Anyone know??Have never seen this before-- and those asking the
questions had never seen anything like this either.Thanks.
Nice tributes all around.I was surprised they didn't have his
son speak. He seems like he would have some great stories to share.
aPefectsixty - Salt Lake City, UTPresident Monson set an example of
how we should act. He developed that art of telling true stories to teach a
principle. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may
see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." - King
Beautiful, beautiful service. And the music was glorious. Thank you to
everyone who participated...
Why are selfies criticized when we wouldn’t know about Pres.
Monson’s visits to widows if he hadn’t remembered them and broadcast
them to the world from the platform of Conference?
Growing up I had the blessing of knowing President Monson and had been in his
presence several times when he came to things like weddings and viewings for
family members. His daughter talked about my Uncle Glen in her talk today.
Because President Monson and my Uncle were very close I cherished a couple of
experiences over the last four years being in his presence. My Aunt passed away
four years ago and President Monson came to the family prayer and sit right next
to my Uncle Glen I was only a few feet away from him and I saw him a few times
and looked into his eyes. He looked at me a few times. To have that experience I
will always cherish. Then Dec. 30th of 2016 my Uncle passed away. On Jan. 4th of
2017 was my Uncle's funeral. President Monson spoke at his funeral. Of
course we were able to be there with the Prophet who was paying his respects to
Uncle Glen. It was just a year ago and now they are both together again on the
other side. I am sure that they are visiting each other. They had become good
friends when they both served as Bishop's in the same Stake. I know that he
was a Prophet of God I loved this great man so much.
54 years as an apostle. I have never known the church without him in the 12. It
is a changing church and growing ever larger. The things he and pres Hinckley
set in motion really accelerated the work of temples and family history so his
passing is a milestone in church history that I will never forget. Pres Monson
was unique ..as a man and leader. He was a smart administrator along with his
I never saw or met President Gordon B. Hinckley and know him to be a Prophet and
I love his works!I saw President Thomas S. Monson a couple of times at
General Conference center but never met him either. I know President
Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet of God even though I didn't get the
personality but then again I am originally from Northern California therefore
have the typical laid back no-nonsense personality of people from there. The thing that I will always remember about President Thomas S. Monson is not
so much his service but he constantly said people need to respect each other.
A beloved giant of a man who shall continue to lead from the other side of the
veil.We love you, President Monson, and we love your family and the
membership of the Church that you so well served.Thank you from the
bottoms of our hearts.Andy & Debbie McKane
A great example of service to God, God’s, Son Jesus Christ. He was always
a people person that went by the promptings.His daughter is a
tribute to him and his wife.
