Potential Speakers at Funeral Services for President Monson

Hello again, everyone! In the late-night hours where the 3rd has become the 4th, I am back to pass along some thoughts about whom we might hear from during the funeral services for President Thomas S. Monson. Based on the outline for President Hinckley's funeral 10 years ago, I have felt the outline could look something like this:

Presiding: President Russell M. Nelson
Conducting: President Henry B. Eyring
Speakers: Sister Ann M. Dibb (representing the family)
Bishop Gerald Causse
Elder L. Whitney Clayton
President Russell M. Nelson
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
President Henry B. Eyring

Again, these are no more and no less than my own personal thoughts, based on what we saw with President Hinckley's funeral services almost 10 years ago. The funeral for President Howard W. Hunter saw a slightly different formula, with addresses from Jon M. Huntsman Sr., Elder James E. Faust, President Boyd K. Packer, President Thomas S. Monson, and President Gordon B. Hinckley. Since this funeral will be put together in the way the Monson family prefers, we could see something different happen. Whatever might happen in terms of that funeral, you can depend on my report on it here after the fact.

That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray that the Lord will bless you all in everything you do.
