I’ve been saddened to hear of the death, on Thursday, of Joseph Fielding McConkie. I didn’t know him well, but I’ve known him a long time, and, several years ago, he and I directed simultaneous tours for the same company (Cruise Lady) in Israel. We had separate buses, but our groups ate breakfast and dinner together and often, sometimes by design, were at the sites together. Importantly, we also shared a couple of firesides. I came to appreciate his sense of humor and, of course, had always appreciated his understanding of, and his commitment to, the Restored Gospel. His voice will be missed.
