General Authority Wives Express Thoughts on Sister Monson

The Church News invited four women whose husbands have served as General Authority colleagues of President Thomas S. Monson to share thoughts about Sister Frances J. Monson.

Sister Harriet Uchtdorf, wife of President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency:

My husband and I have many special memories of President and Sister Monson’s visits to Germany over the years. One time we accompanied them on a very rainy day in Dresden to visit the burial place of a missionary. In spite of the terrible weather, she had a radiance of goodness about her. I was always impressed with the way Sister Monson complimented her husband and supported him in every way. However, I also noticed that she was a wonderful person in her own right. I have enjoyed listening to her as she shared her opinions and experiences. We will miss her friendship, her beautiful smile, and her kind spirit.
