♥ Elder Wirthlin ♥

Remember the WONDERFUL talk, "Come What May, And Love It"? It was given this last General Conference in April by our sweet apostle, Elder Wirthlin. It was one of my favorite talks! Go read it again!
Our sweet apostle, Elder Wirthlin passed away last night in his sleep. He was 91. His wife passed away in 2006. Go HERE to read the article.

Thank you Elder Wirthlin for your sweet spirit and your dedication, we love you!

A friend stopped by Sunday night to visit teach my sister. This was the talk she chose. It was full of good humor and showed his wonderful attitude in life.
How blessed we were to have had him so long. We will miss him and his awesome sweet spirit.
Thank You for sharing!

Yes, I am sad too. I used to work down the hall from him when I worked for the general authorities. He's a sweet man! That was one of my favorite talks too!

So sad...but now he can be with his beloved wife. I love his sense of humor and his gentle kindness. He will be missed.

So glad he was here for us at conference time. That was one of the best talks and one that will be remembered and quoted often. Such a sweet man who will be missed by many.

I'm always surprised when our church leaders pass away. I know that makes no sense, since they are generally elderly, but they just seem like our leaders forever (well, that is probably true on the other side of the veil).

God bless,
Elizabeth

Stop by, if you have time, and read the Christmas story!
