We just found out moments ago that our beloved prophet passed away tonight. For those of you who don't know, he was the president of our church. He was an amazing man and we will miss him dearly. He always had such a great sense of humor and we always enjoyed listening to him speak. What a loving man he was. I'm sure that he is happy again to see his beloved wife.
"What a wonderful and grand opportunity opportunity that is for all of us to be able to sustain our living prophet upon the earth today—but not just to sit there and raise your hand in a haphazard way, but to feel it in your heart and soul that you not only sustain him but you endorse what he has been doing and what he has done for us in representing us to the world. We are thankful for the marvelous and inspired way in which he has communicated and spoken to the world,..." David B. Haight, “Faith of Our Prophets,” Liahona, Jan 2002, 24–27
We are so grateful that he is a prophet of God and that he touched our lives with his great example. He will be missed by many.
