President Gordon B Hinckley
When Ryan and I arrived home last Sunday from visiting his parents we recieved a call from my sister Jenica that President Gordon B Hincley has passed away earlier that night. My first thought was shock because I hasn't heard he was sick. My second thought was sadness because I would miss him. And my third thought was happiness because he has finished his work and could now be with his beloved wife. President Hinckley has been the President of the Church for most of my life and therefore most of my memories of a prophet are of him. What a truly amazing man he was. You can truly see his love for this gospel in everything that he did. I always looked forward to hearing his talks and especially his testemony at conference and how I will miss his sweet voice. Our prayers are with his family at this time that I have no doubt will miss him because I will miss him so much. What an amazing man our Heavenly Father put here on this earth to help us. He did so much for this Church in his life. I look forward to meeting him in heaven and thanking him for his work on the earth. I also look forward to having a new President of this Church. I know that he will lead just as well as President Hinckly.
