Elder L. Tom Perry‏

As some of you may be aware, Elder Lowell Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles passed away on May 30, 2015 of Thyroid Cancer. He lived to the age of 92, and though his death came as no surprise, the news of his passing hit me much harder than I thought it would. It is important for each of us to reflect upon his final words to us regarding the importance of family:

What a wonderful blessing it is that the Lord, in His infinite mercy and wisdom, has given us living prophets and Apostles to give us counsel in these troubled times. Anybody that watches the news can see that the need for such inspired men is greater than it ever was before, and I am grateful to be in this service where I can bring that light to others. 

As we see at the end of Acts 1, another must be called to fill the place of the Apostle, and I know that whoever is chosen will be chosen by inspiration from God. Keep the Perry family in your prayers, but more importantly, pray that we may never forget the example he set for each of us. May we all commit to follow Christ at all times, in all things, and in all places.

-Elder Reynolds
