I was just wondering if you could validate a quote that I heard. I heard that Joseph Smith said that no righteous person would die before his due time. If I could get a reference that would be great.

Thank you

Dear Kyle,

Mormon Joseph Fielding SmithThe quote you are most likely thinking of was given by President Joseph Fielding Smith at the funeral of Elder Richard L. Evans. Here is the quote:

“No righteous man is ever taken before his time. In the case of the faithful Saints, they are simply transferred to other fields of labor. The Lord’s work goes on in this life, in the world of spirits, and in the kingdoms of glory where men go after their resurrection.”

(President Joseph Fielding Smith, Funeral Services of Elder Richard L. Evans, Ensign, Dec. 1971)

I have not, as of yet, found a simular quote made by the Prophet Joseph Smith.
