“His lifelong service and his impact on the world will always be remembered,” the Jazz said.
As the Mormon community continues to mourn [President Monson's] death, the Utah Jazz gave a tribute to the loyal fan with a moment of silence at Vivint Arena ahead of the New Orleans Pelicans tipoff Wednesday.
“For me, from the time that I interviewed, you know with the Miller family how important their faith is to who they are and what they do in the community with the Church,” Snyder said. “It follows that that would happen tonight, that we would have that acknowledgment.
“I think those values permeate the culture of the Jazz,” he added. . . .
