Elder Haight passed away this morning of causes related to old age. When I mentioned his death to my mother she asked me if I was sure he wasn’t just taken up. I will remember him for his soothing demeanor, his sense or humor and his frequent references to Ruby.
In his last conference talk he had the following to say:
I understand the power of prayer and of faith and of devotion, and I acknowledge precious witnesses from heaven. And so I stand here today just to bear my testimony and say hello to you. I’m hoping that by another conference I’ll be totally healed and able to do what I’m asked to do.
I will miss this gentle servant of God.
