Speaker Hughes statement about the passing of LDS president and prophet
Salt Lake City – Speaker Greg Hughes issued this statement following the passing of Thomas S. Monson, president and prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:
I was saddened to learn that President Thomas Monson has passed away. While we mourn the loss of an exceptional man, we also honor his remarkable life that he dedicated to serving others. When he spoke, people all over Utah, the country and the world listened. He truly understood that when you are in the service of your fellow man you are in the service of God. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and members of the LDS church during this time.
