Passing of President John C. Hadfield - April 14, 2008

Dear Elders and Hermanas,

With broken hearts we report the sad news that early this moring President John C. Hadfield passed away.

What we know thus far (and talking briefly with Hermana Hadfield) it had to do with complications from what she feels was combined with the flu. However, there is no official word as of yet. He passed away in the hosptial between 4am-5am this morning. We are expecting more details soon.

The family is very greatful for the outpouring love and support that has come in today. They have requested please no phone calls at this time. For those of you wishing to express your feelings to the Hadfield family we have set up this Gmail account for Hermana and her children: LexineHadfield(at)gmail.com .

May our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Hermana and the Hadfield family at this time.

More details will be posted on this blogspot http://www.santiagowestreunion.blogspot.com/ as they become available. Please help contact your companions, friends, and family to let them know.

Thank you.

My thoughts and prayers are with Sister Hadfield and the family. I am completely shocked. Please let us know if there is a fund set up for the family where we can make donations. Also, if we can send flowers, let us know the details.
