“All these had departed the mortal life, firm in the hope of a glorious resurrection, through the grace of God the Father and his Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ.” – D&C 138:14
“Resurrection is much more than merely reuniting a spirit to a body…The resurrection is a restoration that brings back ‘carnal for carnal’ and ‘good for that which is good.'” – Dallin H. Oaks
