Our Dear President Hinckley

My sister called just a few minutes ago....with the bitter-sweet news that President Hinckley has passed away. While you know he's old, and that it was going to happen within not too many years, it still took me by surprise and sadness. He will surely be missed.

After reflecting a bit, I have to say that I'm really happy that he's back with his sweetheart, Marjorie--I know he's missed her. I have to say that I feel really blessed to have lived during his time--to be a part of his stewardship. I have to pay tribute to his wonderful-ness...for the great diplomat to the world he was for our church, for the many temples he's brought to this earth, for the great humanitarian he was.

We really love you President Hinckley and thank you for your service to us, and to the world--such a life long dedication. You're truly an example of Christ--how we can all be Christ-like today. Thank you.
