I drafted this posting about quotes about faith by President Monson about a month ago. However, with the recent passing of Francis Monson, wife to President Thomas S. Monson, it turns out that posting is more timely than I thought. Losing a spouse has to be one of the greatest tests of faith that a person could have. I am sure it will be difficult for President Monson, but I have no doubt that he will press forward in faith as he always has. He is such a wonderful example of faith and service.
