Pres. Hinckley

I just wanted to do a quick post after hearing the news about Pres. Hinckley. Pres. Gordon B Hinckley died at age 97, Sunday night around 7 pm. He's my Prophet and I have grown to love him tremendously. I have been honored to be in the Conference Center on several occasions and felt the spirit that he brings just by walking into the room. How can you not admire him and all the work he as done for the church and people all over the world. After hearing the news I was talking to my sister-in-law and said "Its just so sad." Joe overheard me and said, "No it's not it's happy." And yes he's right it is happy, happy that he can finally be with his sweet Marjorie Pay and happy that he is where he is meant to be. But oh, how I'll miss him and all of his wonderful counsel. And there's no doubt in my mind where he is now finishing the work that needs to be done. I'm sure my thoughts and prayers will go along with millions to his dear family whom he left behind. We love and miss you Pres. Hinckley!

What a cute picture of him and his wife! It really came as a shock huh, even though we knew it was bound to happen. But you're right, he's probably very happy where he is at. Thanks for posting this!

I was so sad in my heart when I heard about Pres. Hinckley, but I also thought about him returning to his wife.

I am so excited for Aaron and Lisa! I had been thinking that since she is done with school, they may as well go ahead, even if that's not exactly how they had planned things :)
