Once I was at the hospital bedside of my father as he seemed near death. I heard a commotion among the nurses in the hallway. Suddenly, President Spencer W. Kimball walked into the room and sat in a chair on the opposite side of the bed from me. I thought to myself, “Now here is my chance to watch and listen to a master at going to those in pain and suffering.”

President Kimball said a few words of greeting, asked my father if he had received a priesthood blessing, and then, when Dad said that he had, the prophet sat back in his chair.

I waited for a demonstration of the comforting skills I felt I lacked and so much needed. After perhaps five minutes of watching the two of them simply smiling silently at each other, I saw President Kimball rise and say, “Henry, I think I'll go before we tire you.”

I thought I had missed the lesson, but it came later. In a quiet moment with Dad after he recovered enough to go home, our conversation turned to the visit by President Kimball. Dad said quietly, “Of all the visits I had, that visit I had from him lifted my spirits the most.”

President Kimball didn't speak many words of comfort, at least that I could hear, but he went with the Spirit of the Lord as his companion to give the comfort. I realize now that he was demonstrating the lesson President Monson taught: “How does one magnify a calling? Simply by performing the service that pertains to it.”

We had a family reunion and another family reunion and jaunt to Yellowstone.  The sun was cheery and hot, and we had a great time.

Great trail. Nice parking lot at trailhead. Needs some trail building to the Pfiefferhorn summit. Beautiful!

Great place to eat in the area. Good prices for wholesome food. Grilled chicken is the tastiest. Make sure to get there early to avoid a long lunch line.

Good food, but always a wait. Nice to sit down, but ambiance ruined somewhat by noise and chaos. New digital kiosk on each table also unwanted change. This is one of the last places I want another glowing screen in my face.

Great spot to camp. Less touristy than the South and Wes beach. The landscape is a bit barren. But there is some great sand on the beach.
