More Death

I saw an interview with Elder Russle M. Nelson who is a retired surgeon and a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The article was titled "Death is part of life, ex-surgeon says"

He talked of death being an important part of God's plan.

He talked about people relating to him that they could see him working on their bodies while they were dead before being brought back.

He talked about being "troubled by extraordinary efforts to prolong life "that are unreasonable,""

He touched on something that I commented previously about in my Death post. The article talked about that "Those who mourn fulfill God's command, he said, to love each other sufficiently that they shall weep for those who die.""

Elder Nelson states, "Is the veil thin (between life and death)? Absolutely. They are not far away from us."
