What a good and gentle man he was!
I loved him the first time I met him just over 34 years ago. He treated me with such respect and was interested in everything I had to say.
Through the years, I've learned a lot about this great man. He was the grandson of the immigrant Peder Lauritzen, who came from Denmark to America after several years of teaching from LDS (Mormon) missionaries. He brought his family on the ship "Monarch of the Sea".
