President Monson

I’ve been listening to the Sunday morning special between conference sessions about President Monson. I’m amazed at all the detail; President Monson must keep a detailed journal. If you recall, when we attended Aspen Grove I told him about the lady I sat next to on an airplane who talked about Tommy, with whom she’d attended high school, and what a good boy he was. President Monson got out a pad of paper to record the name of the lady, but I didn’t know her name.

From the 9/13/08 Church News I believe the name of the lady must have been Jane Beppu Sakashita. Quoting her, “He is the kindest, most compassionate person.” Also, “He was always friendly, and helped others. There wasn’t a person he would leave out. He was always close to people. You could see the friendship in his eyes.”,1721,500006892,00.html
