30 years ago today - Jul 17, 1993

Counselor Thomas S. Monson presides at the memorial service for the reinterred bodies of former apostle Abraham Owen Woodruff and his first wife Helen Winters Woodruff. Removed from their original 1904 burial sites in Texas and Mexico, respectively, the couple is buried side-by-side in Salt Lake City. This is the first reinternment of a Mormon leader and wife since that of Joseph and Emma Smith in 1928.
