re: Brent's letter to the LDS church

I want to give my best wishes to Brent Allsop as he endeavors to reach out
to the LDS church leadership to learn what he can expect from them in
regards to cryonics.

I would like to thank Anders for the excellent advice he gave on how to
improve the letter. It is very important to avoid confusion and offense.

I expect the church to reject the idea of being listed as a contactee in any
cryonics contract. But, a definitive reply from the church's senior
hierarchy which does not outright condemn cryonics could help mormon
cryonicists(like me) a great deal.

I realize church leaders may see cryonics as a sign of weak faith. I see it
as the ultimate in life extension and not a sure doorway to absolute
immortality. I definitely look forward to learning the reaction Brent gets.

best wishes,
