Goodbye Sweet Prophet

Gordon B. Hinckley
June 23, 1910–January 27, 2008

President Hinckley passed away tonight at about 7pm. My first thought after hearing of our loss was sadness followed by joy because I knew that he was now with his beloved wife. Can you imagine the grand reunion they must have had? I know he missed her dearly and now we will miss them both.

I'm grateful to have had such a wonderful spirit leading our church for the past 12 years. President Hinckley's son Clark was our Bishop many years ago. He even taught me how to do my tithing. I remember Pres. Hinckley coming to visit once and I was able to shake his hand. What a neat memory.

Feel free to read more about our prophet at the official church website, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
