LDS missionary dies on a hike in S. Africa

To the family and friends of Elder Jason David Fry:

It’s never easy for those left behind, but when you lose someone so senselessly and unexpectedly, we all feel the shock.

May it help to know how many people share your sorrow and stand with you in your time of need.

Many share your sorrow. | LDS missionary dies on a hike in S. Africa:

A missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints died Monday after he slipped down an embankment while hiking in Durban, South Africa. Elder Jason David Fry of Silverdale, Wash., had been serving in the South Africa Durban Mission for the past five months. He and a few other missionaries were hiking in a popular scenic area on their preparation day when he lost his footing and fell, church spokesman Dale Bills said in a statement. Emergency crews tried to revive Fry at the scene but were unsuccessful. Bills said Fry’s parents have been notified and funeral arrangements are pending.
