We will miss you Elder Perry

2009 Mormon Miracle Pageant

Today Elder L. Tom Perry passed away and I just had to post about him because he is the only apostle that I have met twice and got to talk to each time! FLASH BACK IN TIME--- The first time was in 2009 when I got the opportunity to sing the National Anthem for 20,000 people at the Mormon Miracle Pageant and Elder Perry said the prayer that evening and I also got to hear him speak at the fireside for the cast before hand and meet him. The second time was in 2013 when I was working in downtown Salt Lake at a make up counter. I saw him shopping in jewelry for his wife and I instantly became like star struck haha "oh my goodness that's Elder Perry!" No one I worked with was LDS so they didn't get my excitement. So I mustered up the courage and approached him all by myself. Of course he was as nice as ever and carried with him the most sweet spirit that left you feeling better than before! I know Elder L. Tom Perry was an apostle of God and I also know that the other apostles are as well. I will miss you Elder Perry!!!

"If I keep my promises to the Lord, He will always keep His promises to me. He [will] always fulfill His end of the bargain—and much, much more—if I fulfill mine." - L. Tom Perry
