After all this attention and outcry over the way the @nytimes handled @ThomasSMonson’s obituary, in his remarks at the funeral @NelsonRussellM goes out of his way to *THANK* the media for how they shared President Monson’s life. Very classy. @mckaycoppins @LDSchurch— J.J. Despain (@joshjoed) January 12, 2018
