Elder L. Tom Perry passed away on May 30, 2015. Although his passing came more quickly than was expected, his last days were peaceful and surrounded by his family and fellow Church leaders. This news story is one I found particularly poignant. (I was reminded about a guest post by Elder Perry’s son here at Mormon Women as well. It’s worth a read.)
And here’s a fun mini-tribute in the world of pop culture and social media history: P. Diddy quoted Elder Perry a couple of years ago!
