*President Faust goes "Home"


~The beloved President James E. Faust passed away early this morning at the age of 87 of "natural causes." He was surrounded by his family as he passed. Pres. Faust was 2nd Counselor to our Prophet, President Hinckley (10 yrs his senior) since March 1995. Before that he served for 35 years as a General Authority/Apostle. Some other accomplishments included him being a member of the Utah Legislature, Church Board of Education & Utah Bar Association. He was appointed by John F. Kennedy to the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights in 1962. Pres. Faust also served during WWII in the Air Force. ~He had a very complete life filled with many years of Christian service. *President James E. Faust is survived by his wife Ruth, their 5 children, 25 grandchildren & 28 great-grandchildren. Although he will be deeply missed by his family & throughout the World, HE HAS GONE "HOME."
