Israel Smith
President Israel Smith lived during a time when few outside of Utah would have seen a difference between RLDS and LDS. I am sorry now that I used "Mormon" with the RLDS leaders, nevertheless, technically as it may had seemed incorrect some such as journalists, authors and others chose not to separate the two organizations. You are not the only one that has corrected me and while it matters little to me I find it interesting. By changing their name to the Community of Christ the RLDS noted (or hoped) that it would help further define the differences. HOWEVER, as I noted in another response even the RLDS in times past used the term "Mormon." I am reminded of a photo of RLDS Apostle Gomer T. Griffith standing by a sign inviting people to the "Mormon" meeting he was speaking at which was held in a Canadian RLDS building. He and other members of the Quorum called themselves Mormons. Even Herald House in the early RLDS days used "Mormon" in relating to the RLDS Church. One RLDS Apostle Richard C. Evans (Not LDS Richard L.) in 1920 wrote a book titled, "Forty Years in the Mormon Church". He refers to his church, RLDS as the Mormon church throughout the book. But again it seems it was poor judgment on my part to use the historical term, "Mormon."

Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and words. Grandpa Young was always so good to the children in the neighborhood and family. I miss him so much.

Sorry to hear about your mother's accident. That is such a shocking way to go.

I hope you are well and happy.
