I have just learned that an Elder I served with on my mission passed away this morning. I don't know any of the details yet, but what I do know is that I could not endure life's tragedies without my knowledge of the plan of happiness. Patrick was always so full of life. You couldn't spend even a few moments around him without laughing. He was upbeat, energetic, and wonderful. Even his facebook status updates kept me in stitches. To lose someone at such a young age is tragic. I am truly grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ which teaches us that our Father in Heaven has an eternal plan-a true plan of happiness. I pray Patrick's family and friends will be comforted by this knowledge at this time of great loss. May God be with each of us until we meet Patrick again.
