Thomas Spencer Monson our beloved prophet Aug. 21, 1927- Jan. 2,2018
I was saddened but felt relief as I heard of the prophet’s passing last night. Abby said it right this morning when I told her, “But we love him!” Yes, we sure do! But he’s been struggling for a while now. It was time. But I will miss him and his humor and wisdom and warmth and his smile. When he became the prophet after President Hinckley’s passing, I wasn’t sure I could ever love him like I loved President Hinckley, which seems so silly to say, but that is how I felt. BUT I did! I grew to love him just as much! How blessed we are to have a living prophet! “We thank thee O God for a prophet! To guide us in these latter days!” Until we meet again.
