Thank you for sharing.

Inside my scriptures, I still carry a lesson taught by Kirk from his days as an Elder's Quorum instructor at BYU. I'm looking forward to seeing him and thanking him face-to-face.

Scott, You don't know me but my parents (Kip & Sabrina Bryson) were friends with your brother Kirk and his wife. I remember a picture of them hanging on my moms dresser mirror for years and I remember the sorrow they felt when they heard of his passing. Thank you for sharing your story of hope and love! What an inspiration you are to those who are seeking the peace that only the Savior can bring.

Thank you for sharing! My heart aches for your loss. Sixteen years ago I tragically lost my son on his birthday in April. I really didn't even see spring happen for many years --- I was so lost in mourning. Yet every moment I felt the love of Heavenly Father and our Savior. I "stand all amazed" at that love. Though others became frustrated with my timetable my Lord never did. He lovingly gave me all the time I needed, until finally, spring came again to my soul. The loss --- the missing never goes away --- but each April the hope in the precious gift of the resurrection and my love for our precious Savior, shines ever sweeter and brighter! Thank you especially for your profound insight into that glorious moment of resurrection! I too testify that our joy WILL, in that moment, outweigh ALL of our sorrow! Thank, thank you and God Bless!

Scott, this is exquisite. Thank you so much for sharing your personal experience and blessing us with a tender review of our universal reason for hope in Christ.

Beautiful article! My heart ached for your terrible loss. Having lost through a tragic electrocution accident, my critically burned over 98-99% of his body eternal companion (50 years ago) after only 18 months of marriage, to this day I still mourn. But at the time, even then, I realized the suffering of our Lord and Savior was even greater. Your article reminds me how grateful I am for His Atonement, knowing that one day we, all physically perfected, shall meet again! Thank you sharing!

Beautifully written. Thank you Scott! I needed to hear this today.

Thank you, Brother Proctor.

So beautifully expressed Scot. Our experiences can be excruciatingly painful, but its so interesting and wonderful how He literally swallows it all up, leaving us with peace, joy and understanding. We become transformed as a result.
