Joel H. Johnson’s Regret

It’s normal to have regrets. As much as most people prefer to go through life without them, it just isn’t going to happen. Later in life, what was Joel H. Johnson’s regret?
a.                   That he would have written “High on a Mountain Top” sooner
b.                  That his sons were scattered and nowhere near home to help him
c.                   That he was never called to be an apostle
d.                  That he didn’t have a chance to know Joseph Smith better
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Emma’s Uncle
Nathaniel Lewis, Emma’s uncle and an ordained Methodist preacher, helped stir up the mob element in Harmony that forced Joseph and Oliver to flee for their safety during the latter part of 1829.
