65 years ago today - Sep 28, 1948

[Following Kimball’s recent ill health and heart problems:] Pres. Smith was just coming in and he invited me in to his office. .... He said I need not speak in the General Conference next week, but if I did, it should be very limited to conserve my strength. He suggested that I not try to attend all the sessions. As I stood up to leave his office Pres. Smith stood also and came near me and said they all loved me and the Church loved me and he drew me to him, put his arms about my shoulders and kissed my forehead. I was humbled by his action and his sweet spirit....
