President Gordon B. Hinckley 1910-2008
Today is a sad day in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our beloved prophet Gordon B. Hinckley has died. Though he meets his wife Marjorie Pay Hinckley after years apart, we are left to grieve over our dear prophet who has brought so much joy, laughter, love and inspired guidance to us all. President Hinckley has been our prophet since 1995 but has been involved in church administration for 60+ years. He was a powerhouse of energy and faith. I for one will miss his genial smile, lately the way he raised his cane in farewell when he would be leaving General Conference, the self-deprecating way he would poke fun at himself and the way he inspired me to be better, always striving, to be the VERY best I could be. He was like a loving grandfather who knew we had more to give and lovingly chided us to do so. All my love to you President Hinckley and to your family.
