“And as they looked to behold they cast their eyes towards heaven, and they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they came down and encircled those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angels did minister unto them.” – 3 Nephi 17:24
“But when we speak of those who are instruments in the hand of God, we are reminded that not all angels are from the other side of the veil… Indeed heaven never seems closer than when we see the love of God manifested in the kindness and devotion of people so good and so pure that angelic is the only word that comes to mind.” – Jeffrey R. Holland
