Hello Family and Friends,
I just landed in MN, but I needed to get this off my mind before I hit the sack tonight.
The last three days will be memories never to be forgotten! Our family performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir/SLC Temple Orchestra. The spirit was soooooo strong! During each performance, they got three separate standing ovations! In the history of the Conference Center, this has never happened! The First Presidency were having so much fun as they danced the night away! It was an honor to meet each one of the 1st Presidency! They are truly Men of God!
This morning, I got to sit right next to President Monson as I interpreted in ASL right in front of the stage for my Uncle Tom. I will never forget this moment. It was the most majestic view ever! Seeing my dad up on stage singing his heart out with the Motab! I started to cry and it just kept coming non-stop!
Then after the third show Sunday Morning "Music and the Spoken Word," President Monson went up and gave a very special presentation to my dad and uncles. The Prophet of God then mentioned to my dad, "I am your spokesperson and advocate." That truly sent a chill up my spine as I truly ponder those words. Then he had them turn away from the audience and face the Mormon Tab Choir. The Choir then sang 'Til we Meet Again.' It was right here where I lost it! I not only heard the Choir sing, but I heard concourses of angels join the musical throng of the Mormon Tab Choir. It will be an experience never to be forgotten.
I am so proud of my dad this night…
