She deeply loved and listened.
While of her heart, she shared.
Her eyes would smile and glisten.
She showed us that she cared.

She brightened up the day
Even as the rain down poured
Always her smile seemed to stay
As though the bright days she stored

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf said that he remembers President Monson saying, “I could not have asked for a more loyal, loving and understanding companion.” He said that whenever he spoke of the mighty power of wives and mothers, “I knew he was thinking of his companion, Frances.”
He remembered visiting the grave of a missionary in Germany with the Monsons on a day of truly terrible weather. “We could not have picked a worst day,” he said. “Sister Monson was standing next to her husband in the pouring rain, barely protected by an overwhelmed umbrella, but there she was with a calm, smile brightening up the day with kindness…in a way that cannot be expressed.”

The highest way to pay tribute
To one who has passed through the veil
Is to express deep gratitude
For the life that they lived so well

While it is a time of sorrow
Gladness can be felt that is rich
From memories we can borrow

Abiding lessons that enrich



President Henry B. Eyring said that, “While this is a time of sorrow, it is also a time gladness for Sister Monson had a rich and rewarding life. The highest tribute to those who have passed through the veil is not grief, but gratitude.”

Of all the funerals to attend
the hardest must be of your best friend.
How lonely the heart, the soul, the mind
at the loss through being left behind.

Love you and pray for President Monson!

Quietly, simply, in beauty
She shared the man we love
He to heed each call of duty
In his work for God above

My heart sank at the news
Of her passing this day
And I went to my knees
For President Monson, to pray
