Elder Maxwell dies

As noted on the LDS.org site, Elder Maxwell passed away last night.  I will miss him, as one of the most thoughtful and well-spoken apostles in recent memory.  His thoughts on the meaning of discipleship, the hallmark of his tenure as apostle, were of personal importance to me and to many others.  Our thoughts are with wife and children.


  1. I echo Steve’s statement. I learned so much about life from Elder Maxwell’s distinct and eloquent teachings and particularly his understanding and need for discipleship in our lives. I have recently re-read the biographical book and other of his gentle teachings. I surely will miss this irreplaceable man.
