Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley 1910-2008
The president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints died this evening and I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for his life of service. What a great example he was to so many people of love, selflessness, righteousness and faith. I really loved to listen to him speak. Just like most everyone else, it is sometimes hard for me to stay awake during Conference but I always perked up whenever he began to speak. He was always so upbeat and happy (and funny!) He will be missed by many. I'm so thankful for his legacy and all that he left behind. He will live on in so many stories he told, books he wrote and inspirational quotations that will be recalled Sunday after Sunday in ward buildings all over the world. Thank you, Pres. Hinckley. I know you are happy to be with your sweet wife once again.
