An Eternal Farewell and Transfer........

Elder Douglas and Kristine Plummer
Military Relations
Washington DC South Mission
December 2011 - February 2012

Military honors after the funeral.  
Elder Plummer was a retired Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army

(Editors note from the mother of Elder Warner)  There are no words to express our family's shock and sorrow at the unexpected and sudden passing of Elder Douglas Plummer on February 15, 2012, age 66, a beloved uncle to our son, Elder Warner.  Elder Doug and Kris Plummer were senior couples, currently serving as military relations missionaries in the Washington D.C. South mission and had been there only 2 1/2 months.  However, in their short time there, they made a lasting impression upon all who knew them.  Their deep and abiding testimonies will live on in the lives of many.  They were deeply loved, and he will be so missed by his eternal companion, (my sister), his children and all of us.  Our letter to Bryan telling him the news was hard to express, but we were assured of his testimony of the Plan of Salvation and eternal families.  He spent the morning in the Monterrey Mexico Temple - the first time back through those sacred doors in over nine months - at the same time our family was attending the funeral in Bountiful, Utah. He found out afterwards about his uncle Doug.   Elder Warner's words to us that day were sacred and private, and we are ever more convinced of a merciful God, who orchestrates the universe and knows all, and loves each of us unconditionally. The veil is very thin...... 

Words from the funeral:  Your father died too young—at least as earth lives go. But, we know he died in the Lord, while doing what he was called to do. And, in the Lord’s concept of time and eternity, his passing was right on time…right on time for the next calling…right on time for his next lesson...right on time for the lessons we have yet to learn.
