For many years we have enjoyed the association of Elder Wirthlins' family members who live in, or managed the two duplexes located in the boundaries of the East Mill Creek 2nd Ward. We especially appreciated our association with Elisabeth, Dan, and Madeline. Always, these Wirthlin family members were a source of strength, love and a positive example to all of us. Elder Wirthlin, your influence, through your family, will always be felt.
We have loved our warm friendship with your brother Dave and his wife Anne, from the University Utah days to the present. Most significantly, we loved your warm and wonderful talks at General Conference. These talks were well organized as was your life. The talks were full of positive stories and examples which we loved. But most importantly, they testified of the Savior, Jesus Christ as it was your calling and priviledge to do. To your wonderful family members that we met personally, we send our love and condolences from our mission in Ohio. (The Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission)
