Our Prophet Dear - Pres. Hinckley
President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away this evening in his home, peacefully and surrounded by family. He was an incredible man, whom many have been amazed by over the past years. I will miss his incredible spirit and candid talk, his sweet sense of humor, his undying love and devotion to his sweetheart, his powerful testimony! He had a great relationship with media who respected him and he was never afraid to be interviewed or share his views.
He has been in the "eyes" of the public and part the church leadership for many years. A young man of 25 and just home from his mission when he went to work for the church in 1935, he remained an employee, administrator and general authority for almost seven decades, an eyewitness — and key contributor — to what he called, with the approach of the 21st century, "a great season in the history of the world and a great season in the history of the church."
I am sure he is already "working" on the other side - I'm sure the Lord has so much for him to do! And oh, the reunion with his sweet wife, Marjorie!! They have been waiting for this for almost 4 years!
WE WILL MISS YOU PRES. HINCKLEY!!
