President Gordon B. Hinckley Passes Away


So I was watching TV and they interrupted the regularly scheduled broadcast for a special report. The newscaster spoke the surreal words that President Gordon B. Hinckley had passed away a little more than an hour ago of natural causes.

I was seriously floored. I ran upstairs to tell Kristy and I think both of us were in a state of shock. I can't think of many church leaders who have impacted my life as deeply as President Hinckley has.

I'm going to miss hearing his wonderful talks each General Conference, but there's no doubt that he had done everything he could to make his life and the lives of all those he influenced better.

I to was so shocked and will miss his wonderful sense of humor and optomistic views.

And now he's back with the "girl of his dreams" once more. He was a great man.
