WASHINGTON- Idaho Senator Mike Crapo this morning praised the life of the late Thomas S. Monson as a powerful example of service to others. Monson, the former President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, died late Tuesday evening in Salt Lake City.
“Today I join those of the LDS faith and others who mourn the passing of LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson. He was a great leader, a kind man who spent more than half a century in service to others through his responsibilities in the Church. His focus was ‘the one’, and he shared that love and kindness whenever he spoke. He was a man of humility, energy, action and intelligence, and those who came in contact with him never forgot it. His was a life to celebrate, and he has left a wonderful legacy of example and service.”
