I actually believe that, in part because you showed me it was so. It's hard to lose you, Elder Wirthlin—you feel like family—but the hope you inspired in my life lives on, and I will always remember that I trusted and felt loved by you. You helped me make out heaven a little more clearly. You kept a pocketful of order and let me see that, really, it's just that easy. I want to be like you. Servant, friend, Olympian.
