LABRADOR COMMENTS ON PASSING OF LDS PRESIDENT MONSON

MERIDIAN – Rep. Raúl Labrador, R-Idaho, issued the following statement after Tuesday night’s passing of Thomas S. Monson, the 16th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:  

“I am saddened by the news of President Monson’s death. He had a servant’s heart and always walked through life looking for ways to help others. His humility and love for every person and his focus on the individual is an example to people of every faith. I hope that his passing will inspire all of us to reach out to those who would benefit from an encouraging word or an act of kindness.

“While I will miss President Monson, I am sure he had a happy reunion with his wife, Frances. The world would be a better place if all of us were a little bit more like Thomas S. Monson.”
