To the more than 16 million members of the Church around the world, President Monson was an example of one who followed Jesus Christ.

Monson had been at the helm of the 16 million-member Mormon church for almost a decade and will be remembered as much for his personal ministry as for his aversion to grand pronouncements. "Significantly, President Monson led the church in renewing in 2012 its commitment to prevent posthumous proxy baptisms of Holocaust victims and other well-known Jews". The announcement of his death garnered an outpouring of reactions and remembrances from various Mormon politicians, according to Fox13.

Monson assumed leadership of the church in 2008 after the death of President Gordon Hinckley, whom Monson had advised as first counselor - effectively the No. 2 position.

But Dehlin also told us Monson presided over "the largest wave of disaffection/apostasy that the LDS church has experienced since the 1830s".

"At age 22, after his marriage to Frances Beverly Johnson, President Monson was called to serve as the bishop of the Sixth-Seventh Ward in Salt Lake City". They believe in the Bible, as well as an additional book of scripture, the Book of Mormon. Survivors include three children, Thomas Monson, Ann Dibb and Clark Monson; eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Upon death, a Mormon president is succeeded by the head of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a post now held by the 93-year-old Russell Nelson. "He died at age 90 from causes incident to age". The ward - the same unit he had spent his childhood and youth years attending - had more than 1,080 members; 85 of them were widows.

The late president also denied Mormon women the right to be ordained as priests, sticking to his traditional views. At the time, the church announced Monson was starting to feel the "effects of advancing age".

Eyring and Uchtdorf served as first and second counselors to Monson, respectively. But President Nelson's priorities in office may be somewhat different, given his background in medicine, his experience training heart surgeons in China and his fluency in Mandarin.

"Prophets see ahead - they see the harrowing dangers the adversary has placed, or will yet place, in our path", President Nelson said. Once Nelson assumes the presidency, that distinction will fall to 85-year-old Dallin H. Oaks, a former Utah Supreme Court Justice who was named to the quorum in May 1984, one month after Nelson. The other opening was created when leader Robert D. Hales died last October.
