Here's what you can expect. I'm actually surprised that they are having an open casket viewing. I've only been to one of these viewings, Howard Hunter's, and I believe it was a closed casket...but dang that's been so many years ago...hard to remember.

There should be no shortage of tales to tell, including the myriad yarns Monson himself divulged


Low-key apostate stuff right there. I wonder if he'll be in his temple clothes?

Lining up to look at a dead body. Sick and morbid.

The wife and I took a drive around the Salt Lake City cemetary this Mormon out of morbid curiosity. We were kind of wondering what kind of headstone Thomas S. Monson would get. Would it be bigger than Hyrum Smith's obelisk?

Would it be thicker than Kimball's or McKay's headstone?

Alas. We didn't see it. We thought it would be obvious, perhaps a mound of flowers indicating that This Is the Place. But no. We did, however, see a healthy coyote and a herd of elk deer. That was neat.

I love this guy! Haaa.

Anyway. After some Petersonesque sleuthing for material I'm posting a picture I personally took with my own camera this image from cribbed from Google:

up loading photos

Thomas S. Monson's headstone is left over Conference Center granite taken from Little Cottonwood Canyon. It's been balanced somehow, that will prevent it from eventually tipping over like some of the older headstones and monuments.
