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!!

Jennifer, wow it has been such a long time since we have seen you guys. We would love to get together or do a reunion in AZ or something. This UT cold is driving me nuts. Thanks for your comments on our family blog it is great to stay in touch with family. Please send my regards to your family.

Pres. Hinckley was such a fine man and a great prophet, I will miss him greatly and I wouldn't want to be his successor, those are some BIG shoes to fill but I am sure the Lord will qualify.

Tack care and please tell your family hi, Ben and Sherry and oh by the way what is Brad up to these days. Funny how your two siblings married good friends of mine.
