In Honor...

As most of you may already know, the prophet of our church,

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints,

passed away yesterday.

President Gordon B. Hinckley

was 97 years old.

I found this interesting article about this wonderful man which sums up a lot of his life if you're interested in learning more about him.

I am so grateful for the opportunity I've had to live during these latter days along with such an amazing prophet.

What a sweet man he truly IS.

I was a little sad, but honestly, I am SO happy he gets to be with his wife again. Since she died, I have kind of wished he could join her, it must have been so lonely for him without her.

He has been an amazing leader, this is a very sweet post, thank you for writing it.

i removed the last comment because it made absolutely NO sense. I need that pregnant sign by my computer so i don't drink while i type. Anyway, all i was going to say is that i would have said everything Tara said and that i'm glad you posted too.

I was going to write a sweet little post about Raymond and how I almost named him "Gordon." Then it kept going on and on and I started bawling. Ah, the joys of being CRAZY!
