President Hinckley

I awoke to the newspaper on the counter with the lead story about the death of our beloved Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley. Tears sprang to my eyes immediately. What a love I have for this wonderful man. I will miss hearing his distinctive voice, Seeing that sparkle in his eye and his sweet smile. I will miss his fun personality. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a true prophet of God. I know that he served honorably and never wavered in his faith. What an amazing example to us all.

My other feelings as I read the headlines were of the joyful reunion that must have occurred as he was reunited with his wife. I loved seeing them together and hearing them speak of each other. What a strong bond of love they shared. Yet another example. I am so grateful for my knowledge that families can be together forever.
I now look forward to the ever onward growth of the church with President Thomas S. Monson as our new prophet. He too holds a special place in my heart. I love his sweet stories and his happy spirit. I know that I will come to love him just as much as I loved President Hinckley.
